Dedicated to helping locals and visitors alike enjoy the unique wonders of New York City, Classic Harbor Line hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a relaxing, inspiring and breathtaking cruise through the waters we proudly call home. Our three classic yachts – the Schooner Adirondack and the Schooner America 2.0 (our sailboats), and the Luxury Yacht Manhattan (our motorized yacht) are reminiscent of the classic boats that cruised the NYC waters a hundred years ago.

From purchase of tickets to the end of the cruise, everything went very smoothly. It is a beautiful way to see the city skyline and is nicely enhanced by excellent jazz music, drinks and lite snacks. Highly recommend this cruise for a relaxing, enjoyable time!

I planned a mother daughter weekend and found this cruise which seemed perfect. The boat is adorable and heated but you can walk out to see the sights and take pictures. They do assign tables but we got closed in to a small table with 8 people and a seat but it was all couples and they didn't use the... More

Great band with fantastic arrangements of Christmas classics. The service is excellent and the boat is beautiful. And on top of all that, there is the New York City skyline and... More

This was a lot of fun - it was a festive atmosphere listening to the live jazz trio play Christmas music while enjoying the city lights at night, including a great view of the Statue of Liberty.

Treat yourself to a round the island cruise on a small, classic boat with comfy seating and panoramic windows. We booked the holiday brunch to kick off the season's festivities and happily munched our way around Manhattan. After our trip, it was an easy one block walk to 23rd & 10th Ave where we walked off our calories on the... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
