      • The Shearwater: This classic 1920's sailing yacht glides across the water, riding the wind with assured grace. A shipshape crew keeps this around-the-world cruiser's ride stable and her passengers well cared for. 
      • Astounding scenery: View the Big Apple's skyline and iconic harbor landmarks from a privileged perspective. Experience the ambiance of the harbor, the call of the seabirds, the chime of the buoys, and the energizing embrace of the elements.
      • Photo ops: Cruising along the Hudson and through New York Harbor, you'll be able to capture priceless images of the Freedom Tower and Lower Manhattan, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and New Jersey across the water, 
      • Propose a toast: Leave the cares of landward life behind as you relax on the spacious deck and enjoy a complimentary drink (beer, white wine, champagne, and soft drinks served); additional beverages are available for purchase.
      • Come as you are: Casual elegance reigns aboard the Shearwater; you'll be comfortable in jeans or evening wear. Don your rubber soled shoes or go barefoot, and experience the special kind of mellow only a vintage sailing yacht can provide. 
      • Do it in the dark: In season, you can book an evening-time City Lights Sail and see the bustle and noise of the city turn to silence and sparkle as you slip out onto the Hudson to watch the world's most famous skyline light up. There's nothing like it!

      This tour is seasonal and operates from May 11 to October 11.

      Tour Participation Requirements

      Activity Level

      This experience is rated mild. To participate fully, you may be required to walk over primarily even surfaces at a leisurely pace. You may encounter a limited number of steps, cobblestones, or uneven surfaces, and you may have to stand for extended periods of time.

      Age restrictions

      Suitable for all ages.

      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.
