On a fine summers day why not board a clipper ship and sail around New York Harbour? Board at Castle Clinton and sail towards Lady Liberty and back to Manhattan. A very relaxing afternoon and the backdrop is of course spectacular. Tip take sun lotion.

Many kinds of tourist boats can take you down Hudson River and near the Statue of Liberty in New York harbour. I chose Clipper City Tall Ship for the trill of it. And I wanted to see Manhattan "from the sea". Enjoyed the sound of flapping sails, the swish of the water, the wind and sun on my face. Very... More

My husband & I took the nighttime cruise using the New York Pass this summer. It was a perfect night and I would pay full price to do it again. They had a great crew who were knowledgeable, safe, and truly seemed like they wanted us to have a great sail. They have a bar with light snacks for sale... More

We are a couple who are NYC born and bred. Never went to see the Statue of Liberty from Liberty Island and don't plan to. Lol. It is not necessary. In our opinion, viewing her from New York Harbor is enough, no need to climb. We love sailing also, so this day excursions was perfect. We took the 2:15 pm... More

We were excited for our Clipper City Tall Ships sail during a recent trip to New York but seems we had the wrong impression of the sail. We were hoping to get some information about the ship itself (or clippers in general) and about the harbour and waterways, but that was not on offer. It seems it was intended to... More

This is the most relaxing and wonderful experience. We did the evening sailing leaving at 21.30 in the evening. Smooth sail out onto the Hudson River, views of the Statue of Liberty and spectacular views of the skyline of New York. Would do this trip again as truly amazing. Thanks you.

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
