Tour Participation Requirements
Even on vacation, many of us still have too much on our plates. It's so hard to completely untether from responsibilities, emails, plan-making, and all the rest.
Well, here's your perfect solution: a way to unfurl your personal sails, free your mind, and surrender to the simple intrigue of plying the waters aboard a classic 1929 sailing ship.
For 90 glorious minutes, you'll leave the everyday behind – and enter the calm realm of the extraordinary.
As soon as she slips away from the North Cove Yacht Harbor along the Hudson River, it starts. Surrounded by the legendary skyline of the world's most fabled city, you'll feel your mood elevate and your cares fall away as you glide into the calm of the water's world.
For all its tranquility, this amazing vantage point will spark excitement in you and your travel companions. Even the most seasoned traveler can't resist the primal thrill of seeing Manhattan and its trademark sights like the Statue of Liberty from out here, aboard an intimate sailing schooner.
The Shearwater herself proves a worthy destination, its own small floating world of aged wood and varnish and canvas. As she heels gently over, puts her shoulder into the breeze and sets her wake fanning out astern, you'll find yourself deliciously lost at sea – at least for awhile.
At the end of the journey, you'll disembark refreshed, reinvigorated, and perhaps even quietly transformed by what you've just experienced, and shared.
Assembly instructions included
France planned to gift the Statue of Liberty to America in 1876 as a celebration of 100 years of U.S. independence. But they got a late start on building her. Bartholdi's hammered-copper masterpiece was at last finished in 1884 and shipped over as 350 pieces in 214 crates. They sat in storage for 11 months while Lady Liberty's pedestal on Bedloe's Island was prepared. Reassembly took four months. No word on whether any parts were left over in the box.
Choose your date and time very carefully. This tour is non-refundable from the time of booking.
