Why Go?

Best Known For: 
A unique voyage with spectacular views of NYC on a nationally recognized landmark – the Shearwater, a Newport-style schooner.

The feeling of the wind blowing through your hair while you slash through ocean waves is unforgettable, and combining that with the awe-inspiring sights of New York City is an excellent way to enjoy a unique experience you’ll remember long after you’ve left. The Shearwater is a classic schooner and a landmarked vessel, so watching the sailors rig the ship for sail will take you back to a time when things were slower, calmer, and more relaxing. You’ll be time-travelling for 90 serene minutes as the Shearwater guides you around New York Harbor, letting you see New York City from the sea, where you’ll have the opportunity to take some of the most fantastic photographs of the panoramic New York City skyline. On top of everything else, your trip on the Shearwater is eco-friendly since the whole excursion is powered by wind. It will offer you a brief respite from the bustle and noise of the city that never sleeps.
