Statue of Liberty Tall Ship Sailing Cruise

    What to Expect
    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.

    We took this cruise yesterday and it was very nice. A great way to see the Statue of Liberty . The crew were very nice and we had a lovely time. Awesome to see them put the sails up and take them down.

    What an amazing, unique way to see the Statue of Liberty! Very personal with about 30 people on board. The crew were professional and courteous. There seemed to be a treasure hunt for the kids on board which looked fun. A great trip.

    This boat was recommended by some friends & they were spot-on. Loved every aspect of the cruise & enjoyed having a chat with one of the crew members. Had a few cold beers on board too. By far the best value of anything we did...More
