What you'll do

Delightful and soothing live music will greet you - either Bosanova, classical or some other Easy Sunday morning music. I was raised in a Jazz and Classical music family; because of the beauty of the experience, we are able to attract acclaimed musicians to come play aboard our vessel.

You will be invited on board our clipper ship, the CLIPPER CITY TALL SHIP, where you can take the edge off your morning with a bloody mary or mimosa as you receive a short safety speech and orientation where questions will be answered.

We will motor off the dock and get underway; raising sails once we have cleared the sea wall. We sail around the harbor for 1.5 hours past the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, in view of bridges and other landmarks of NY Harbor. You will be able to walk around the vessel and engage my knowledgeable crew with any questions you might have.

With the wind in your hair, Seagulls, buoys, foghorns and passing ships and tugboats will give you a serene start as you plan the rest of your day in NYC. You will disembark energized and with a pleasant and subtle buzz. Your perfect Sunday awaits...

I've been hosting cocktail & other cruises with NYC's most accomplished musicians for over 15 years.

I was born and raised in a musical family in NYC & I began volunteering aboard historic sailboats in NY Harbor approx. 30 years ago. I and my captains hold USCG-issued 100-ton captain's licenses; sharing our love of sailing under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty & NYC Skyline with locals & visitors for the past 19 years. My largest boat, the CLIPPER CITY, is a 158' replica of a pre-Civil War Era boat built in 1854; she sailed until 1892. She was the fastest and largest ship of her day.

Your host will be either me or one of my friendly captains - Mike, Ray or Syed. We take pride in offering an intimate, casual experience here in NY harbor; you will get in your sightseeing trip to the Statue along with an exhilarating sail!!

Where you'll be

Transported to another version of NYC, by the lapping of the waves, the rustle of the sails, the wafting of lovely music and gentle cocktails...

You will see the landmarks of NYC. The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, bridges and the stunning NYC skyline under the power of massive sails - over 6,000 sf.

Buyer beware! The advertisement said “Up to 10 people”. We expected a much more intimate experience. There were 30 or more guests, not including the crew. Duration said 1.5 hour. We were back at the slip in about 40 minutes and just floated around for a few minutes to kill time. The whole trip lasted 1 hour and 15 minutes. Got close up to the Statue of Liberty which was the best part of the whole trip.

I know that Tom does not control the weather however, PERFECT weather made this an AMAZING experience. I am sure that the sailing part and the fabulous view part and the delicious mimosa part would still be great without the perfect day but....the weather just made everything good better.

This was a real highlight of our trip to NYC. It was intimate enough that we didn’t feel crowded or herded, and the drinks and live music were just delightful touches to a beautiful morning of sailing in the Hudson. We were all absolutely thrilled with our morning. Definitely recommend to anyone who has a Sunday in NYC!

The sailing experience was great. We got an exceptionally gorgeous day that wasn’t too hot. The sailboat was lovely and the sailing was really nice. The bloody Mary’s were very peppery and delicious. I think it would’ve been amazing if it was 30 minutes longer. It felt a little short. But what a gorgeous view and the close up view of the Statue of Liberty. Wow... The trip was presented to me online (the app) with the cocktails. But more than half of the boat had just purchased tickets the day of for a little bit cheaper if you wanted to skip the included drinks. I just would’ve liked to have known that that was an option. And that wasn’t really presented to me through the Airbnb app. But I sure did enjoy my bloody Mary. Thank you for a beautiful sale today.

Highly recommend this great experience. Great way to see the city and meet new people in a comfortable environment. I was even allowed to steer the ship. Thanks to the crew for a fun time!

The tour was a great way to see the Statue of Liberty and spend time on the water. It was the perfect way to start our Sunday and the crew were very friendly and made the trip awesome. For some reason there wasn't any live music on the boat the day we sailed - not sure why not
