Fabulous experience with Captain Mark. Really got us moving . Loved the Pride flag for Pride month. Sailing much better than on a huge motor boat and we were able to get a much closer view if the statue. Fabulous service from his crew and we all had a great time

All of it, especially when my sister steered the sailboat and hoisted the sail. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. You can tell they enjoyed what they do.
Worth Every Dollar!

Worth every dollar spent!!! The staff was attentive and experienced of course the plus of a woman captain. The boat was beautiful not overcrowded and can’t beat the views of NYC & Lady Liberty up close!!!!
Smooth Sailing
Salvador_P, Jul 2023
It was just a lovely day to sail. We just not get tired of the Statue of Liberty and watching the NYC skyline. The crew was very entertaining!
SeoYoung_Y, Jul 2023
Great experience! So much fun:) you should definitely try. Recommend late afternoon to enjoy the breeze
Highly recommend!
Courtney_C, Jul 2023
Could not recommend this more - if you are looking for a break from the business of NYC, these two hours are exactly what you need. We’ve been to NYC several times and my only regret is not doing this sooner. We’ve done the bigger tours/boats (not sailboats) and this is far better and more fun! The experience is great, the crew is so friendly, and we’ll definitely be back!
Wet ride
Paula_M, Jul 2023
After having one trip cancelled and having to ask for a refunded difference of a cheaper boat, the boat has a leaking roof it soaked me- buckets of water. I was offered paper towel. No discount or refund. Not cool. Very little announcements of the sights. Would not recommend
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Hello Paula, We are very sorry to hear that you had issues with rebooking and getting wet on your cruise. Please email Classic Harbor Line directly at so that we can take a look into your situation! Warmly, Classic Harbor Line

Great Bur need to be more upfront about costing
bruce_b, Sep 2022
The boat crew and staff we’re all excellent. The cruise was more than satisfactory with great views. The only negative was that we were offered a drink of champagne wine or beer when we set sail . Later they came around and asked us if we wanted another drink. We were surprised to receive a bill before we disembarked for the second drink. The crew said the first drink was on them but you pay for anything after that. No one mentioned that to us in the beginning. Again it had no effect upon our enjoyment of the cruise but left a bad taste.
