About This Experience

General Information hide

Take in the picturesque views of a Manhattan Sunset aboard the America 2.0, a 105’ Schooner. This breathtaking two-hour sailing adventure through New York Harbor is an adventure gift you are sure to enjoy.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the friendly Captain and Crew. Once on board, the Captain will expertly navigate this magnificent vessel away from the dock and south down the Hudson River towards the Statue of Liberty.  Sip on a complimentary beverage while watching the sun as it begins to disappear peacefully into the horizon. Discover the breathtaking evening views of the New York City Skyline from Chelsea Piers to the Financial District.
