Hop aboard the majestic Clipper City tall ship for a daytime sail around the Statue of Liberty that will pull you back to the bygone era of the 1800s, a unique experience provided by Manhattan by Sail. Experience epic views of the New York City skyline and the thrilling sight of the crew hoisting the massive Clipper City’s sails, masts soaring 120 feet from the deck. With tickets to the Clipper City Daytime Statue Sail, you’ll slice through the waves of the New York Harbor, giving you ample time to lounge on the decks, sip a martini, and drink in the unbelievable views of the Statue of Liberty. You’ll get to see Lady Liberty from all sides, and without fighting the crowds on Liberty Island.

Whether you spend the 90-minute cruise on the raised quarterdeck, braving the sun and salt-spray, or down below at the full bar, you’ll feel relaxed and transported. Pack a picnic if you like – maybe grab some lobster rolls to complete the seafaring theme. The sail is unguided, but the staff is friendly and happy to answer any questions. And the clients are a mix of locals who love sailing and tourists out to experience the city, so you’re sure to meet interesting sail mates.
