Dedicated to helping locals and visitors alike enjoy the unique wonders of New York City, Classic Harbor Line hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a relaxing, inspiring and breathtaking cruise through the waters we proudly call home. Our three classic yachts – the Schooner Adirondack and the Schooner America 2.0 (our sailboats), and the Luxury Yacht Manhattan (our motorized yacht) are reminiscent of the classic boats that cruised the NYC waters a hundred years ago.

Well worth while to see Manhattan from the water. The commentary was excellent and directed to the architecture of the city. The commentator was knowledgeable and presented the material in a clear and concise manner. He was readily available to answer any questions. Good selection of complimentary beverages. The 'snack foods' were disappointing...not at all appetizing . Have lunch on... More

We took the AIA cruise around Manhattan in mid-May and enjoyed it immensely. Our guide Kyle was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke for almost the entire 2.75 hour cruise, pointing out prominent buildings, parks, bridges, roadways, neighborhoods and more, and telling us about their designers and history. The hors d'oevres were tasty and we especially appreciated "all the chilled water you... More

Last week my husband and I took the 2.45 hour architectural tour that circumnavigates Manhattan. Our guide, an accomplished architect , gave us a nonstop informative narrative about the Manhattan skyline. The snacks they provide are delicious and light. You can wander outside and feel the lovely breeze and still hear the guide. Great way to spend the afternoon

This was our second time taking this relaxing, fascinating tour of NYC. A highly knowledgeable architect gave the commentary. Highly recommend this for those interested in how NYC developed and current architecture. Commentary touches on all five boroughs with a focus on Manhattan. Crew members were very friendly and helpful. Boat is beautiful.

It was our last night in New York and we couldn't have had a more wonderful time. The captain and crew were friendly, knowledgable, and very capable. We got fantastic views of Manhattan as evening fell, sailed past the statue of Liberty, and enjoyed the wine and beer that was provided. It was really memorable and we would do it... More

We are originally from NY and never experienced such a wonderful narration about the city structures and bridges. Our friends recommended it and we agree it is a great tour. We will return to take some of the other tours offered.

This was the third time I have taken the AIA round-Manhattan cruise and I always recommend it to friends. The commentator, a qualified architect, is well informed not only on buildings to be seen but also on urban development and infrastructure. The crew serve free drinks ( I had very acceptable Champagne) and nibbles--yesterday with a Greek flavor, dolmades, feta,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
