City Lights Sail by Shearwater

See the world’s most famous skyline light up the night from the deck of the historic schooner Shearwater. The bustle and noise of the city turns to silence as we slip out into the Hudson, cut the engines and unfurl our sails for a tranquil 90-minute cruise. Enjoy breathtaking close-up views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and other gems or the harbor while relaxing on deck with a drink in hand.

History of the Shearwater:
Hand built in 1929 from native hardwoods, the 82-foot schooner Shearwater is a throwback to a bygone era of yachting. New York City’s only floating designated landmark, Shearwater has been taking New Yorkers and the city’s visitors sailing in the harbor since 2001.
