Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 afternoon sail, enjoy beautiful views of New York City landmarks from one of two decks.

Nothing to do with Statue of Liberty

The title is misleading. Very short, under an hour, and not getting even close to Statue of Liberty.

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.

Cancelled due to Mechanical problem

Mechanical Problem Cancellation of our trip at 1:30p on July 10 2018. We (myself , my son and my grandson) were at the pier at about 12:55p. The young lady on the pier told us that th ship had s mechanical problem and could not sail. She offered to book us at 1:30p on the next day (July 11th). We had tickets for a 2p matinee performance of School of Rock on July 11th. And we flew back to Nashville early on the 12th. I paid for a trip that was cancelled by the boat operator. I should have a refund.

Equipment Malfunction caused cancellation of the event. I and my party were offered an alternative date, but our trip schedule did not permit an alternative.

Mechanical problem

I, my son and my grandson were unable to sail on the tall ship on Tuesday, July 10th, because the ship had a mechanical problem. The young lady who was at the desk in front of the pier was very nice and very apologetic. We were unable to shift the cruise to a different day because of schedule conflicts (we were only in NYC on the 9th, 10th and 11th and were fully booked on the 11th). The young lady offered us a cruise on a smaller sailing ship. We walked over to the smaller ship but did not have the time necessary to sail on it.

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.
