A Chat with Intimate NY Harbor Tour by Sailboat
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Since there are never more than 7 or 8 of us on board, it is easy to strike up conversations, as well as for me to share the history and background of the boats and places we encounter. For those looking to take part in the sailing, you can lend a hand with hauling in the sheets, or steering.
What is the experience customers can expect?
Expect to be amazed. New York Harbor, like the city itself, is huge and diverse. The lower harbor is quite large and filled with both famous and little known landmarks and wonders. Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, the little known Russian Memorial to September 11, as well as ships of all types.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I did a harbor tour as a favor to some friends who were starting a tourist oriented operation. The tour was instantly popular. I loved the way the people who sailed on the boat fell in love with NY City in a whole new way. The tour gave them a perspective they never imagined.
What do you love most about your job?
I love sailing my boat, especially when I'm sharing the experience with others. Often the people who sail with me become profoundly reflective during our time together; gaining an experience of both the city, and the peacefullness of sailing at the same time.
