What You Can Expect

New York Harbor Evening Sail with Live Jazz

Take in beautiful views of the New York skyline

Hop aboard the Clipper City, a replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America’s industry more than a century ago, for an electrifying evening out on the harbor. The hustle and bustle of the city are replaced with the sweet, cool rhythms of bebop, blues, ballads and other jazz music as you sail smoothly out into the summer night with the NYC skyline lit up behind you. Enjoy music by acclaimed jazz guitarist, Joe Cohn, joined by accomplished saxophonist, Avram Fefer, and other guest musicians.

Bring a picnic to enjoy on deck (no outside drinks permitted) or simply enjoy a cocktail, available for purchase, from the ship's full bar. There's always drink specials so feel free to indulge as you slip through the harbor waters.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2012

Friendly crew, nice boat but after sailing in the Caribbean a few times on a similar boat I'd like to see a few more secure places for the guests to sit. High winds made the return ride rougher than expected. The Capt. needs to have his crew more attune to his needs than they were ,once the weather turned, for safety sake.
