We celebrated my boyfriend’s 30th birthday On the boat. Everyone had a great time, the boat was clean but it was a bit hard to move around on (people walking around the boat wet and such). Mark was a great entertainer and everyone had lots of fun. Will definitely do another trip!
It was amazing time thanks to Mark!!!!!!
Memorable experience! Mark was an exceptional Captain making sure the guys had a great time! We will definitely schedule another trip soon! Everything was perfect!
Just fabulous! Can’t wait to do it again!
Usually this boat operates around Jersey City, NJ.
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.
