Take this twilight sail and watch night fall on the city as the sun sets behind the Statue of Liberty from the unbeatable vantage point of the harbor, the perfect way to start off a beautiful evening in the city.

Few people ever have the chance to sail aboard a tall ship. The topsail schooner Clipper City allows you to do just that. An imposing 158-ft. long, with masts and rigging reaching up 120 feet from the water, New York’s largest and most impressive sailing vessel can accommodate up to 134 passengers.

Sit back and relax or help raise the sails and take a turn at the helm! Order a drink from the on-board bar as you drop canvas and leave Manhattan behind.

Tour / Activity Description

COVID-19 Protocols Updates

These are completely open-air experiences.  While this environment makes the transmission of Covid-19 unlikely, the Captain and crew closely monitor New York state guidelines for any updates on best practices.

 

The Vessel

A replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America’s industry more than a century ago, Clipper City was built in the mid-1980s using plans purchased from the Smithsonian. Designed with her new cargo in mind (i.e. you), her decks are spacious and comfortable, with ample seating, a full bar amidships and a raised quarter deck back aft that allows for unparalleled views of the city and its harbor.

 

What to Wear

  • Passengers are asked to wear only soft-soled shoes such as sneakers, deck shoes, flip-flops or sandals. Heels and boots can scuff the deck. Bare feet are also fine.
  • The temperature can be cooler out on the water so dress accordingly.
  • Light skirts and wind do not always mix!

 

Food & Drinks

  • There is a cash bar on board (beer, white wine, Prosecco, soda, juice and water).
  • Beverages may not be brought aboard by guests.
  • You may bring food aboard for your sail, but stay away from red sauces, potato chips or anything else that could stain the deck. Please throw away any trash at the end of your sail.
