Hi my name is Ian. I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years and love to share my joy of sailing and nature with guests. I'm the owner of Enchantress, a beautiful 1994 Catalina 34 sailboat. I have a USCG (United States Coast Guard) Master sailing license, I'm certified in CPR, and have spent years living and sailing around the Atlantic East Coast. I once solo sailed the Bahamas for a Winter and had friends visit me along the way. I look forward to meeting you and going out for a sail around NYC Harbor!
This was an amazing experience! My fiancé and I got engaged on the boat, and Ian and his brother were so kind and accommodating. Everything was perfect, and the ride was beautiful. 10/10 recommend them all day.
It started pouring rain during our trip but my group still had a blast, it was a wonderful time!
Amazing experience! Highly recommend. Beautiful tour, lots of fun, and a great way to celebrate a special occasion. Ian is wonderful - great communication, reliable, and friendly.
My family and I were pleased with everything; the online booking, boat service and trip experience . highly recommended.. looking forward on doing again.
We had an amazing time with Ian on his boat sailing around NYC! We highly recommend him and will definitely be back.
