I took my son Jesse with me and we had a wonderful time. The captain was first-rate and very informative. It was a perfect day to set sail, and we were breezing along at 10 knots. The beverage service was much appreciated, and the crew frequently asked if we needed refills. What an outstanding way to spend a leisurely few hours! Gorgeous views of NY and NJ. I very highly recommend this trip to EVERYONE!
It was very relaxing! We really had the perfect day to sail! Boat was in great condition nice and clean. The crew were all very friendly, offered you beverages of your choice several times through out the trip, took pictures for you! All around it was a great time!
This was a great cruise up the Hudson River off Manhattan...the ship was a beautiful wooden boat in excellent condition with a great friendly and handsome crew. The wind was not strong but all the sails were put up..a great sight. The city views and those of the Statue of Liberty were awesome...all in all a great afternoon...Highly recommended.
What a great day. Captain and shipmates, were all so helpful, attentive, fun, sociable while allowing everyone to visit with their friends. Perfect! My friend and I appreciated the beverage service, and that we could bring our food aboard to further enjoy the day. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner I already have my eye on the sail around Manhattan before season's end. What a great (and relaxing!) way to get out of the City without really having to leave! I'm sure the other passengers would agree (they all seemed to have had a great time, too)! Thanks again!!
We had an excellent time on the Americas 2 schooner. The captain was great, the crew members were very competent and attentive, the beer choices were very good, and the sail itself was fantastic. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it to others.
Excellent sailing, great captain and crew!! Would definitely go again or purchase a gift for family or friends
Wonderful trip, but I would suggest installing handles around the vessel to hold on to when it turns on its side.
The crew was amazing. Professional and attentive, but also really social and chatty. It was a great staycation option for New Yorkers and a great way for tourists to get some beautiful skyline pictures without the hassle!
My partner and I enjoyed our sailing experience on your beautiful schooner. The weather was glorious, the view of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty were memorable. I bought this for a Christmas present for my partner and it turned out to be the perfect gift.
We had a great time it was a beautiful sail.
AWESOME way to see New York, especially while in the middle of a heat wave! It was great being on the water, drinking beer and seeing the Statue of Liberty, all at one time. Friendly staff, fun experience and will totally recommend to anyone.
The crew was very friendly and attentive, the boat safe and smooth despite heavy winds. We enjoyed the free beverages as well. A good time was had by all.
We picked the worst day to be out there cold and rainy! The trip was delayed 20 minutes which worked out pretty well because the rain stopped but it was still cold and wet. However I commend the crew for making the best of a bad situation and once we all had our blankets on and were out in the water with our drinks all was forgotten and the weather warmed up. So overall it was a good experience.
Fabulous! A different way to see the city. Fabulous views of the skyline, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Crew friendly and helpful. Relaxing experience and would definitely recommend.
The schooner was beautiful, the crew was delightful, the weather was perfect and the trip was outstanding. Viewing the citybfrom thebwater was very exciting. We enjoyed it Soo much that we are talking about taking our grandchildren on this trip.
I have to say I had images of it being choppy out there and that I would be thrown about within the yacht, however, I could not be more wrong. Once they turned off the engine and set up the sails it was plain sailing from that point on. I found this to be very relaxing and watching the sun set over the Hudson river was just beautiful. As a budding photographer I had ample amount of opportunities to get snap happy. I would highly recommend this to anyone as it was a highlight of my holiday as it exceeded all expectations.
This sailing trip was a gift we received for our engagement. It was a lovely time to relax and sail while viewing the NY skyline. We had a great time and all of the staff on board were so accommodating. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you!
It was a fun sail, we especially liked that our captain made it a 'real' sail with some keeling. Great crew. Thanks!
Great experience! My boyfriend received this as a gift and we had a wonderful time. We even discussed giving this as a present to his parents. The staff/crew was more than nice and accommodating - we just wish it were longer!
Absolutley a wonderful experience. Crew knowledgeable and courteous, the boat comfortable and clean and the 2 hour sail was fantastic. Loved all the side-sailing during the 1st hour and a smooth ride the 2nd hour. I would recommend highly and plan to sail again next summer.
We had the best time!! The weather was perfect! The Crew was amazing and very informative about the historial sights. Can't wait to do it again!!!! Highly recomend!
The perfect end to my 21st celebrations in New York, could not have asked for better company, staff or weather. Perfect sunset to go with the beautiful views, definitely an experience I would recommend for others!
The trip was great, the crew was very helpful. We would recommend this trip to anyone in the area.
I know you don't control the weather but even it was wonderful.
The sail was a wonderful experience and a great way to spend the afternoon in New York. We had spectacular views and beautiful weather. The staff was great and attentive. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
Even though the day was overcast and threatening to rain, the trip was great due to the fantastic crew. All of them were personable and helpful and did a great job. My wife and I would definately do it again.
We had a lovely sail off Manhattan to the Statue of Liberty with great views of Ellis Island and the Manhattan sky line. Thoroughly recommend it! Very polite, professional crew made the experience very pleasant indeed.
A wonderful afternoon of sailing on a two masted schooner on the Hudson. An exceptionallly friendly crew made for a great experience!
Excellent Experience. The Captain (Joe Connor) handled the vessel with expertise in high wind and heavy boat traffic. Crew was freindly and helpful. Would highly recommend.
I suggest that the sail boat go out as far as Verrazono Bridge rather than duplicating the same area in circles. Alternatively go up the Hudson beyond 34th Street. Also, in addition to complimentary beer and soda, offer wine as well.
The entire experience was wonderful. The crew headed by Captain Andrew were amazing. They made you feel comfortable and at home. Will recommend this cruise to everyone. Looking forward to getting a bunch of friends together for a cruise.
Good crew, good boat, beautiful views. The trip is a little short.
Would be better as a sunset sail like we did the previous year - also the previous year wine and champaign were included and this year crappy canned beer that was undrinkable as it tasted like it was chilled and then heated several times and the brand was awful for the money the trip cost.
The America 2 which was supposed to be the ship we were scheduled for was grounded due to low tide. We were moved over to the Adirondack which left 30 min later. The ride with the new Capt and crew wqas exceptional. Very cordial, polite and attentive to everyone's needs. Very nice and I would recommend to anyone. Had a very good experience.
We changed to 3:30 pm, Monday, Sept 26 due to inclement weather on the Friday before. What a wonderful time we had. The Captain and her crew couldn't have been better. We really enjoyed the sail and would recommend the experience to everyone.
We had a great time and would definitely recommend it. Only suggestion is I think wine should have been included (we are not beer drinkers).
The boat was beautiful people wonderful. Most of the time out we had rain and my husband hates the rain. The rain was miserable so that ruined the trip couldn't wait to get back.
We had a wonderful trip. We are native New Yorkers and hard to impress. We were impressed. This is a great experience!
Crew was great, boat was lovely. The sail was fun with lovely views.
The closest thing to sailing on heaven!!!! Can not wait to go again and bring all of our friends!!! The crew was fantastic. Thank you for a terrific experience
Thought the crew was great,happy Captain. Pleasant surprise drinks included. I would of liked to be out another 20 minutes. We left after 1PM came back at 3PM
Crew and vessel were second to none. My wife and I had a lovely time and we hope to have an opportunity to sail again. It was a very relaxing and unique experience.
What a great experience! Saturday, July 16, 2011 was a picture perfect day. My wife and I had a relaxing and enjoyable ride. The crew was courteous and friendly.
Great sail and crew already referred it to a friend and will be back with our family this summer.
It was great! Great crew! What a unique way to see NYC!! I was a little nervous about the boat, and the crew made me feel comfortable about the trip - and laugh! They were generous with beverages, and taking photos of all of us! Totally great!!
Awesome time sailing around new york harbor. free beers too!
The crew was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. This created a most enjoyable trip! Beautiful weather, well maintained boat and attentive crew - we would highly recommend this Experience! What a great gift to have been given.
Our boat ride on the Adirondack from Manhattan was great, the crew was great and the ride was fun.
My husband and I enjoyed the trip. Crew was polite. We felt the tour could have used a better naration of the views.
To begin with, when we arrived they did not have our names listed although we had made the reservation weeks earlier and had our confirmation with us. They did get us on the next schooner but with no apology for the error. Beer and wine were offered. I gave the guy $10 for a $5 glass of wine and he never returned with the change. Finally except for a short safety speech when we began, for the entire 2 hours the crew said nothing. Very unfriendly.
Had a blast, beautiful views on the sunset cruse, great crew. Would looove to do it again!
I had an amazing, amazing time!! The weather was beautiful the people were awesome. I enjoyed it and I would definitely do it again.
The Schooner outing was absolutely fantastic. The crew was wonderful, the company just great, the view was and site seeing perfect and the weather could not have been any better. What a beautiful Friday evening.......... One of the best times of the year!!!!!
Had a wonderful experience on the Adirondack. Recommend it for all age groups. We brought along a picnic supper and enjoyed the complimentary wine or beer. The crew went out of their way to make us comfortable even with a few showers that popped up.
I gifted this experience to my boyfriend on his birthday and it was the best time we've had to date. The views were breathtaking. It was a very relaxing, romantic evening completed by a beautiful sunset! The crew was amazing and they made the experience tons of fun! Cannot wait to go back. Thank you for an amazing experience!
The views were beautiful and the crew was a pleasure to be around! My husband and I had a good time :)
After all this heat, the weather turned and we an exquisite evening. The crew was so attentive. The sail was calm and beautiful. And what a romantic night. I came home and bought another sail for a present for my son's birthday. Kudos to all involved!
We had a perfect evening sail. Weather was great wind was up and the crew was great! Recommend this trip for anyone. Unfortunately we didnt get to sail up the East River to the Brooklyn Bridge but we were under sail for the majority of the trip.
Three things stood out in this experience: 1. the sail, the captain, and the crew were wonderful 2. the woman who checked me in and gave me the boarding pass was such a help. The other person scheduled for this sail was sick on the day and unable to come. This woman said she would take care of that so that the sick person could come back and take her sail at a later time. That really made the entire experience for me since illness was not under any of our control. 3. the overhead helicopters are a real noise pollution. The winds were great, the sail was wonderful but you could not enjoy the quiet of a sailboat because of the helicopters. I know you have NO control over this but ... you asked. Thank you.
Absolutely a wonderful sail, crew was friendly and accomadating. Was a beautiful day which I am sure added to our enjoyment.
My husband and I had an amazing time on the boat. The crew was awesome! We had never seen the city from the water before and it was great. I would tell other family and friends to give it a try.
Very nice sail, the crew was absolutely fantastic!!
My wife and I were given this adventure as a Chrismas gift 2008 and were finally able to redeem and enjoy. Crew was excellent, weather was perfect, waters were calm. We've already a few people we wish to give this as a gift to. Great day on the Hudson.
Both My wife and I were very pleased with the Capt and crew. One of the customer's hat went into the water. the Capt. was kind enough to swing the boat around and hook it. The trip was and peacfull with all the NY city sites all around us.
My husband and I joined our friends for a lovely sunset sail on the Hudson and were very pleased with the captain and the crew. The sail was very beautiful and relaxing and the crew made a point of making sure everyone was satified and had a great time. When the sails were hoisted and the engine turned off - it was one of the most peaceful moments anyone could experience. We would love to do it again! Highly recommended and a great value!
The Schooner trip was remarkable. The crew and Captain were welcoming and inviting. Above all they loved what they do. I recommend everyone see the city from the Hudson. It brings a new light to the city. Additionally the last sail gave us the opportunity to see the sun glistening low on the water. Absolutely stunning!
Pros: Crew was nice and went out of their way for us. Cons: Very limited sights - should have went under the Brooklyn bridge at least. Sailing uses sails - and while this was done, the boat was under engine power 75% of the time. If you've never seen NY before it's good. But for those of us who live close, it's a waste of time.
The was a great experience. The views were fantastic. The captain and crew were first rate. They could not do enough for us. My wife and I enjoyed it so much we have recommended the trip to others and intend to take the trip again.
Tom, Chad and Kate were great. They made the sail on the Imagine a relaxing and enjoyable. The sail afforded us a different of the city. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
julian and his crew were great. very relaxing beautiful view.
After a month of constant rain, we had the only three hours of sun and wind... perfect conditions for a few hours on the Hudson. Tom, Kate, and Chad did everything right to make my son and I feel comfortable, relaxed, and welcome. Great gift from my brother and his family! Thanks!
What a fabulous evening. The weather was just perfect and the ride was so relaxing and calming. There is no place better than NYC to do this - would recommend it to anyone. Thank you. -Jackie
What a wonderful and relaxing experience. The weather was perfect, the captain and crew were efficient and yet engaging and the view spectacular. We have told everyone about the pleasure of sailing with you.
Being a New Yorker (born in Manhattan) I am almost naturally suspicious of everything and everyone. It seems like most things are a scam and everyone is just trying to get your money. However, I couldn't be more pleased with my experience sailing on the Adirondack. Not only was the crew and Captain extremely professional as well as friendly, but those 2 hours became like a second honeymoon for us. With busy lifestyles, heavy work schedules, kids, pets, mortgage, etc... it seems like we never get a chance just to be together without something being on our minds or the phone ringing. We fell in love with each other all over again. It was like the very best first date a couple could ever have. Thank you so much for offering this beautiful experience!
My trip on the Adirondack was absolutely fabulous! I would (already have) recommended this experience to family and friends. The hospitality and friendliness of the crew was amazing. This may have been my first but definitely not my last. Thank you for a wonderful day on the water!
The weather was just perfect and the crew was so nice. They were very sociable and made us feel welcome. I would recommend this trip to everyone I know! Thank you so much!
The view from the Schooner was truely relaxing and beautiful. The crew was very polite and I would certainly take another trip on the boat.
I gave this Xperience to my husband as a Christmas gift, and we decided to use it on a very hot day. It was the absolute best place to be. The boat was beautiful and comfortable, the crew was friendly and attentive, our ship mates were really nice, the captain was lovely and allowed my husband to pilot the boat for a good long time. This was one of the best 'mini-vacations' we could have taken. Thanks so much!
'The view from the Schooner was amazing...very beautiful. The clues provided great customer service, and took care of us and tried to keep comfortable environments and moods. That is outstanding..... Experiencing on the Schooner would be one of the best New York Experience. I will definitely recommend to other people. Thank you!'
