Seeing New York city's lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty while sailing on the Hudson river was a fantastic experience on a nice sunny day in June 2014. The crew is very professional and friendly, and as the day we went out was quite windy, it was interesting to watch them handle the boat on a busy water-way on such a day. We enjoyed the day out and would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who would like to see Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty in the privacy of a comfortable and enjoyable sail-boat.

I went sailing using Gotham Sailing’s services, and had an all out fantastic time. The sailing was relaxing yet invigorating, and the sights of the New York Cities skyline were beautiful. The crew was friendly and knowledgable about the city. One gets to spend a good amount of time on an active body of water for a good price.

Gotham Sailing really has two demographics to draw from. If you like sailing and being on the open water, then you would have a great time. If you want to sight-see, then you would have an equally enjoyable time. The way I look at it is if you want to see/get to know New York, you might as well be doing it in a unique and invigorating way; definitely beats standing in a crowded sightseer ferry.
