Absolutely amazing trip. Javier takes you out on his gorgeous sailboat right next to the Statue of Liberty. Javier was the the best and extremely responsible to all of my questions and helping us find the boat. He even had a speaker so we could play music. I would highly recommend - my friends and I are already discussing going again. Overall fantastic trip and cannot express how much fun we had. Amazing escape from the city and a great way to see the skyline.
We had a great boat ride for our engagement. Javier was very friendly and accommodating and made sure that we were right in front of the statue of liberty when my fiancé proposed, making for some great pictures. I would highly recommend Javier for any kind of boat ride. His boat was as seen in pictures and clean and well maintained. Thanks again Javier for the great memories!!!
I booked a couple of hours sailing as a surprise for my husband, but it was a treat for the whole family. Javier was very hospitable and made us all feel very comfortable out on the water. My husband is an experienced sailor, so Javier gave him some time on the helm which just made the trip for him! Could not have asked for a better skipper nor a better experience. I only wish I would have booked for longer!
What an amazing day! This was our first experience using Sailo and we booked this trip somewhat last minute for my birthday. Javier was very accommodating and helpful throughout the reservation process and answered all my questions prior to booking. Although it was a cloudy and slightly chilly day, Javier made sure our experience was enjoyable and we couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. We would recommend this trip with Javier to anyone looking to celebrate or even just to spend a few hours on the water to see the city from a different perspective. Thank you again Javier!!
Really fantastic. The best you can do to enjoy NY skyline!
Reasonable prices. The Captain, Javier , is a great guy!
More than excellent. Thanks a lot.

Javier came to NYC from Spain in 2002 and started sailing in the harbor soon after. He was amazed by the beautiful and totally unique experience of New York City from the water. He became a sailing instructor and US Coast Guard captain to share his passion for sailing with others.
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.
