We had the best time! Captain Dave is amazing and his boat is fantastic! So much space to lounge around and enjoy breathtaking views of the city!
Dave and his boat are fantastic! We booked for some sailing instruction, and while there wasn’t much wind, it was still amazing. Dave explained the boat setup, the electronics, and other relevant things to consider when sailing in the harbor while giving us a beautiful tour around lower Manhattan. We also set sail and took the wheel for a bit. I would 100% recommend going out on Dave’s boat with him whether for a sightseeing tour or to learn from him, or both.
Dave was friendly and punctual. We had a great time aboard the ship and spent a wonderful morning cruising the Husdson river.
