Super OwnerMartin

Hi! I love to share the joy of sailing. I have a USCG 100 Ton Master Captain’s License and am a NYC architectural and history tour guide. I learned to sail in the NY Harbor more than 25 years ago. Sailing the NYC archipelago is always beautiful and interesting. It's what I live for. Let's go sailing!

  3. KF

    Captain Martin was amazing from the moment we booked our trip to the moment our wonderful trip ended. He was so accommodating and had everything we needed on the boat. His first mate Caleb was the best as well. We cannot wait to set sail again soon on the Saga!!

  4. JR

    Martin is a great captain. We enjoyed the trip with him and his boat SAGA. He explains everything and is always willing to answer any questions you have. The boat was amazing, in really great conditions and we had a really good time with him and his crew. With Martin you will get really amazing views of Manhattan, Statue of Liberty and all the most important venues!!
