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.

This boat trip was totally worth the money. Just as a friendly recommendation: not the best for kids or teenagers because the boat ride is looong; even for us adults we started to loose our attention span. It is very relaxing though (for people who enjoy being on a boat) and you do get a beautiful journey of New York... More

I took the full 2.75 hour tour around the entire island of manhattan. It was a very comprehensive guide to all the sites bordering the entire island including all the buildings, bridges, parks and so on. The guide was a professor of architecture and had a wealth of information about nearly everything we passed. It was the end of December... More

The music and views were the best part of the tour. We enjoyed ourselves. I've done other boat tours, and although this is not my favorite, it was unique and enjoyable. Everything in NYC is awesome!!

Good service and experience. December is really cold, so if you want a ride with nice view and heating, this is it.

This was our second time with the Holiday Harbor Line, no doubt it's a must when you go to NYC. The music is great though it could be done a bit earlier to see the sunset during the trip. Thanks for all!

While the website's description suggested we should bring additional snacks, which was a worry at first due to high price, there was actually plenty of food and a very nice variety. The personnel was very courteous and the boat itself is elegant. One heads-up and recommendation would be to add maybe 2-3 more crew members as it felt short-staffed. All... More

We loved the architecture tour. The boat was beautiful. The docent was superb (knew so much and was an architect - and that makes all the difference). The staff/crew were so friendly and nice. Just an all around outstanding experience (and I am a NYer). We have already recommended it to all our family and friends.

Got the holiday jazz cruise for my husband as a surprise Christmas gift. NYC at Christmas is already pretty magical. This cruise was the icing and cherry on the cake. Great music, atmosphere and crew. I'll be doing this again.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the more peaceful aspects of NYC. I was lucky enough to book a sail on a windy & overcast day...the crew was visibly excited about the prospect of cruising under full sail at good speeds! It was exhilarating. It also beat any other (motorized) boat tour around the island. So nice to be... More
