NYC Night Cruises

Call to order 212-627-1825

City Lights Cruise We think the NYC Sunset sail is pretty romantic, but what is even more romantic and relaxing is our NYC Night Cruises aboard one of our sailboats or one of our classic motor yachts.  Our City Lights Cruise is the best date idea in NYC. These cruises with show you the city in a way that it will take your breath away.  When sailing at night on the schooner, we will shut down the engines. We raise the sails and make sure you have a glass of Champagne in your hand as you cozy up next to your loved one.  The NYC skyline is your backdrop and the sky is vast. The twinkle of the lights and the sparkle of the Statue of Liberty will be an image that you will surely remember. Glide through NY Harbor and dance with the wind and water.

If you’re not into sailing then step aboard our 1920s style motor yachts. Cruise through NY Harbor at night on our NYC City Lights Cruise with your friends. Sip on wine and have conversations and laughter. As you enjoy your evening you will pass quietly under the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge.  We will cruise out to the Statue of Liberty to catch a glimpse of her standing strong with her torch burning bright. This is the perfect way to impress your out of town guests! It is also the most romantic NYC night cruise perfect for a date. (Photo by Tali Blankfeld).
