Set sail on New York City’s waters on board the Clipper City. Departing from Slip 2 on the south side of Battery Park, this sightseeing voyage explores New York Harbor with outstanding views of the Big Apple’s best attractions.

The original Clipper City was built as a lumber-hauling cargo schooner just before the start of the Civil War. It was then rebuilt from the original plans, which were on loan from the Smithsonian Institution, and more recently refurbished to the modern-day sailing vessel on this tour. The new and improved Clipper City is 158 feet (47 m) long and 120 feet (36 m) high and can accommodate 130 passengers, more than any other sailboat of its kind in the United States.

On this 1.5-hour afternoon sail, enjoy beautiful views of New York City landmarks from one of two decks.

So fun to sit under the sails on the way to the Statue of Liberty. The trip took a little over 1 hour and was just the right amount of time. Miss Liberty was great to see from the water! And it was fun to watch the crew raise and lower the sails. Well priced.

This was a wonderful way to see our magnificent Lady Liberty. We saw her at dusk. The Tall ship made us feel like the early seekers of a brighter future in America. The crew was wonderful and actually helped a crew of us us experience set sail with our bare hands and then we coached us to take the sails down. The drinks were good.... the day was delightful, sunny, and we had a great breeze. It was Glorious! We are so glad we took this adventure.

We did not sail on the Tall Ship. The directions lead us to the small Schooner, which was great experience. The crew was fantastic, friendly, informative, and on their game. The Captain was a joy to talk with. That's the Boat and Crew. Trying to find the Tall ship was a disaster. I had to call to find directions, which lead us to the smaller Schooner. There needs to be much better directions to the whereabouts of each of the ships.

I am a New Yorker, born and bred. I have also traveled throughout Europe, Thailand, Tahiti, Africa and Israel and it takes a lot to impress me.
This simple, inexpensive side trip did.
Great for adults only and adults with kids.

A lovely voyage on beautiful boat. A little more information about what we were seeing would have been nice but then it could also have spoilt the tranquility.

Wonderful sailing experience when they hoist the sails. So much better than being on a sightseeing boat in the hatbout. Will go against hopefully on a windy day.
