The boat will head south down the Hudson River to Battery Park providing you with amazing views of Manhattan along the way. During your sail, you will pass by Ellis Island as you make your way to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, you will also sail towards Governors Island and breeze by the Financial District as the Schooner teases her bow under the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River before heading back up the Hudson River.
