Sail New York's historic waterways aboard Water Music, a classic, semi-custom 40 foot Passport yacht.
Sail aboard Water Music past Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Governor’s Island, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, and the Gleaming Towers of Manhattan! When you book with Water Music you get a private charter, for a maximum of 6 passengers, with a captain to see to your safety and enjoyment. Rates are as follows: Two Hour Charters: $450 Three Hour Charters: $575 Additional Hours: $150 There are no hidden fees or taxes. The only potential extra charge is for a Manhattan pickup. The North Cove marina charges $200 for a pickup/drop-off. Your Experience: This is your private charter. You will not be on the boat with strangers. The standard tour is 3 hours. I feel this is the ideal tour length that allows time for a full tour and real sailing. Bring your own food, beer, wine, or liquor Wirelessly connect your music to quality portable bluetooth speakers or the house stereo with Blaupunkt speakers and subwoofer. Lounge anywhere on the boat on comfortable individual chairs. Fleece blankets available for those cool evenings. For your convenience, 2 pick-up / drop-off locations: Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City North Cove Marina in Manhattan - What is you cancellation policy? A customer can cancel a sail for any reason, up to 48 hours before departure time, and either reschedule, or receive a full refund.

If you want to bring a meal or something special to eat, I encourage you to avoid big, messy dishes with hot sauces, etc. Salads, platters, sandwiches, etc. are great. We supply plates, cutlery, napkins, glasses, etc. Feel free to bring wine, beer, liquor. etc. There is a small refrigerator, and a good size cooler if all does not fit in the fridge. We normally have ice available, both for drinks and to keep your food and liquids cool. If this is a special occasion, there is an ice bucket and champagne flutes. - Is it OK to bring small children aboard? Yes. Children are very welcome.

We had a wonderful time sailing around NYC celebrating my husband's birthday. Captain Ed was great, and his boat was lovely and clean. I highly recommend chartering his boat.
This is amazing boat and Edward is an amazing captain. Highly recommend for everyone, you will never regret it.
Our sail with Captain Ed was magical! We were celebrating a birthday and it simply could not have been more enjoyable than our time on the water. We started our sail at 5 pm and were able to enjoy wonderful views of the Statue of Liberty, Financial District, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. We passed under the bridge and looped our way back around the city just as the sun was starting to set. The sunset sail was simply spectacular. Captain Ed is incredibly skilled and even our family members who tend to feel seasick didn't feel a thing all sail long. The waves were enjoyable and Captain Ed made the sail as smooth as can be. We will definitely be doing this experience again and we can't recommend it enough. If you can, go at sunset. It's absolutely beautiful.
Fantastic sailing on a beautiful boat. We had a great time doing a full tour of the harbor over 3 hours. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing captain but definitely smaller than I thought. Loved the experience!
