Choose Between Two Options

During Fleet Week, May 23-30th, a host of Tall Ships from the U.S. and foreign navies gather in New York Harbor to showcase the old-fashioned beauty of their many sails, complex rigging, and imposing planks while The Blue Angels fly overhead. To get an up-close view, passengers board a 60-foot sailboat and cruise out to meet them. For two hours, the tour coasts past breathtaking views of the New York City skyline—including Ellis Island and the George Washington Bridge—before stealing up-close peeks of the ships. The BYOB policy allows guests to sip personal coolers of beer or wine as they enjoy the provided snacks and take in the majestic tall ships. Boats launch at 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. daily from Wednesday, May 23, through Wednesday, May 30. Upgrades to the special tall ships tour or sunset tours are also available.

Seacoast Sailing

Originally built to sail around the world, the New Horizons motorsailer now spends its days providing Maine hospitality to its guests while gliding along the scenic Northeastern coast of the United States. After boarding the sailboat, groups can take in the sweeping views of the New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and past the Statue of Liberty, while sipping drinks and savoring treats such as the classic Maine lobster roll, which can be purchased on board. Seafarers may also embark on special voyages, such as Lobster Day Sail picnics. With its spacious design, semi-private upper deck, and modern sound system, the New Horizons can handle events that range from large family gatherings to old-fashioned ocean-drinking contests.
