The perfect staycation for any occasion - sailing in the calm waters of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge with our charter. This is a private excursion that includes Captain and crew, along with fare and beverages (no alcohol provided, byob). Deliverance is one-of-a-kind in NYC, a 40 Pilot Schooner designed by Atkin and Co out of Huntington, Long Island. Her spacious cockpit and decks provide the perfect t setting for small groups, whether to socialize or take in the surroundings. She is the only small schooner available for small private groups in the entire region.

Our sailing ground, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, is NYC’s largest open space and a gem of the region. In general the waters of Jamaica Bay are much less busy than the waters of Manhattan/ Upper NY Harbor, Long Island or NJ, and well sheltered from the predominant seasonal winds. This gives our guests a fantastic opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city with an incredible view of the entire Manhattan skyline. We can drop the hook for lunch and a swim, or just keep her moving and enjoy the wind in your hair!

Cpt. Jarad has sailed the waters of NY for nearly 20 years, and has worked on several natural science research projects in Jamaica Bay during his tenure as Live Animal Curator st the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.. His knowledge of the area provides an excellent opportunity for our guests to discover flora and fauna as well as local history, all while have an amazing experience under sail. His lifetime on the water runs the gamut from power boats to sailing vessels to small tugs all along the Eastern Seaboard, with 50,000 nautical miles of open ocean sailing from the Northeast to the Caribbean, the North Sea and the Mediterranean.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Far Rockaway, NY.

New York City looks great from the ground, but that view from the water is something else! Jump aboard a Sailo boat rental from the Big Apple and experience the thrill of the sea - and snap plenty of incredible pictures. Sailing in NYC is a must on your summer bucket list, whether you are visiting or a New Yorker.

It might not be the first thing you think of when finding things to do in New York City, but renting a boat for a full day or just a few hours is a truly memorable experience.
