We are currently sailing in New York Harbor! Learn How We’ve Changed our Operation!
As Covid-19 transmission rates continue to fluctuate in the New York City area, Classic Harbor Line (CHL) is running a variety of heavily modified cruises in line with the required health and safety guidelines for our area.
You can book tickets now with greater ticket cancelation flexibility.
Also, there have been many updates to our operating practices that guests should review:
Classic Harbor Line will be following the NY State Reopening guidelines as they pertain to our industry. Please also note that the guidelines we adopt may be changed over time by governing authorities and we will therefore adjust accordingly. For any major changes, our previously booked guests will be notified.
Do I have to wear a mask the entire time?
Yes. We are huge fans of facial masks. We know you may need to slide your mask over to take a sip or smile for a photo. But we ask that you return your mask to its upright operating position as much as possible.
What is the air ventilation like?
All seating on the schooners is in open air on the outer decks. The Kingston is very similar in that her entire back deck has wide open windows. All seating areas in the main salons of the Manhattans will have openable windows, A/C with Hepa filters installed and partitions between seating areas. You are also always welcome to go out to the outer decks.
How much space is between me and the next person?
This will vary based on attendees. Do note that facial masks are required by each guest, capacity is reduced to reflect the current New York State Guidelines, and private ‘zones’ or private ‘tables’ will be designated and plexiglass patricians are in use between all indoor zones.
Can I secure more ‘space’ on a public trip or book the boat privately?
Yes! Call us directly to arrange this: 212.627.1825
Can I choose my assigned ‘Zone’ or ‘Table’?
Our ticketing system will space bookings as they come in based on size. You can make requests (i.e. port, starboard, forward, etc.), and we will do our best to accommodate you, but cannot guarantee it will be available. All Tickets on the Manhattans will be assigned to ‘tables’ in the main salons. All tickets on the schooners will be assigned to ‘zones’ on the open deck. All tickets on Full Moon or Kingston will be assigned to seating zones.
Can we move around the boat? If on the Manhattans, can we go to the outer forward deck?
Yes. Please just be courteous of others, creating the best case social distancing practices, and of course, always wear your mask.
How many guests will be on the boat?
All excursions will be at the State or city mandated capacity. 25% capacity for indoor and 50% capacity for outdoor spaces has been the most common guideline.
How often is the boat sanitized?
The boat is sanitized between every sail, including all high-touch points (handrails, doorknobs, chairs, table tops) and bathrooms.
Can I eat on the boat?
Very light food options will be available on board. For health and safety reasons, if you are bringing your own food, we ask that it be nothing more than a simple light snack. (Please be advised that as of December 14th 2020 according to NYS law, all food and beverage consumption must occur outdoors.)
Can I bring my own alcohol?
No outside alcohol is permitted, but it is okay to bring personal bottled water or non-alcoholic beverages on any of our excursions. A complimentary beer, wine, Champagne or soft drink is available on each excursion and additional beverages are available for purchase. (Please be advised that as of December 14th 2020 according to NYS law, all food and beverage consumption must occur outdoors.)
