Quench your thirst with a nautical-themed cocktail while taking in the majestic sights aboard the Clipper City, New York's largest and most exquisite sailing ship! A replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America's industry more than a century ago, this elegant 158-foot (47m) ship was built in the mid-1980s using plans purchased from the Smithsonian Museum.

With masts and rigging reaching up to 120 feet (36m), you can experience the romance and elegance of cruising in a bygone era on this unique New York Harbor tall ship sailing cruise. The Clipper City boasts outside and covered deck space to ensure comfort even during chilly weather. Choose from 3 relaxing cruise itineraries throughout the day and enjoy great views of New York and the Statue of Liberty!

Afternoon Sail
Join your crew as they unfurl the canvas and set sail for a peaceful 1.5-hour cruise across New York Harbor. See Manhattan's skyline from the spacious main deck or raised quarter deck, and have the opportunity to snap photos of the Brooklyn Bridge and Ellis Island from the water. This is truly a unique way to see New York while you take in the best views of Lady Liberty.

As the sun sets on the City That Never Sleeps, you will leave Manhattan behind for spectacular views of the city and its harbor on this 2-hour sunset cruise. Enjoy a relaxing nautical-themed cocktail, purchased on board from the full bar, while you watch the day turn to night over Manhattan and New York Harbor from the ship's serene, spacious deck.

Harbor Lights Sail
Unwind from your day, and escape the hustle and bustle of the city as you cruise New York Harbor at night for your 1.5-hour Harbor Lights Sail. Watch Manhattan come to life from the schooner's decks as you admire the world-renowned New York City lights, with a nightcap cocktail in hand.

Narrated NYC History & Statue Sail
Come aboard and step back in time as a licensed tour guide narrates this 60-minute sail through one of the largest natural harbors in the world. Discover the rich history of the New York City Harbor and surrounding areas, its role in the creation of the nation, growth of commerce, defense, immigration and architecture.
