General FAQs about all our excursions.


  • Wonderful no matter what time of day!
    I have taken this boat ride many times (at different times of the day) and every time is wonderful. The captain is very friendly, the staff are very hospitable and the boat is simply beautiful. There is nothing quite like it when the engine is turned off and the sails are raised and you are swiftly sailing by the busy city. I highly recommend it as a before dinner activity or something unique and memorable to do with friends from out of town. There is something very special about sailing at night (even though day-time cruises are nice as well). A real New York City find…

  • Highly Recommended Night in NYC
    My girlfriend and I are a college couple who live in Brooklyn, and we were both extremely pleased with this perfect evening. We went on the Adirondack, which was a smooth cruise on a great summer night. The crew and staff were excellent, and the ride itself contained a great deal of scenery while we were allowed to sit or lay down on the seating towards the front of the boat. We are looking foward to doing it again.
