      About this New York tour

      Few people ever have the chance to sail aboard a tall ship. Be one of them as you sail around Manhattan on Clipper City and point your imagination toward the horizon. This topsail schooner, an imposing 158 feet long, with masts and rigging soaring 120 feet from the deck, can accommodate up to 150 passengers.

      The ship has motors to get you out in the water in a short amount of time before you can help raise the sails, if you choose (with plenty of help from the crew). Then settle in for a peaceful sail, no narration; just the sounds of the harbor. A full bar means that you can quench your thirst while you soak up the magnificent views.

      Clipper City is a replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America's industry more than a century ago. The original ship was decommissioned in 1890, but the blueprint for the boat was stored at the Smithsonian Institute. The new ship was built in the mid-1980s using these plans. Recently updated, the ship offers you the best of both worlds: old-school design with today's modern comfort and conveniences.

      Sailing is an all-weather activity. You can take Clipper City day or night, rain or shine. The Daytime Statue Sail provides great views of this iconic lady. The Harbor Lights Sail shows off the world's most famous skyline as the city that never sleeps comes alive, and you a have front-row seat.

      Goodwill boating

      On July 4, 1976, a parade of tall ships sailed into New York Harbor in honor of the nation's Bicentennial. They were part of Operation Sail, or OpSail, a non-profit boating organization created in the 60s to foster goodwill among nations. The maiden OpSail voyage was held in concert with the 1964 World's Fair in New York. The tall ships have been trotted out to commemorate other milestones as well, but few will forget the majesty of the Bicentennial event.
