Welcome to New York City's top rated sailing charter company on the harbor!
This is Captain Eric, at your service! My standard offer is a 4 hour sail along NYC's skyline for up to six passengers aboard my classic sailboat, which is a seaworthy Tayana 37. A four hour sail includes sailing close by the Statue of Liberty and underneath the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. I also offer sails for different lengths of time. Two hour sails cost $715, four hour sails cost $995, and full day charters cost $1,990 and you can choose between a morning, day, or sunset charter.
My charters include sandwiches, fruit, snacks, water, sodas, and ice and I encourage you to bring your own music to plug into the excellent stereo, as well as your own alcohol. Pick up and drop off is from Chelsea Piers (Pier 59) in Manhattan. Again, this is New York City's top rated sailing experience!
Eric gave us an amazing sail. I think I gonna book his boat again in the future.
My clothing company booked The Genesis as our photo shoot location for a 3 hr sunset charter- Captain Eric was fantastic and made the experience so easy. He was helpful, hospitable, and The Genesis was so perfect for our shoot aesthetic. Will definitely be booking another charter with him for fun with friends sometime soon! Would highly recommend booking with Narwhal Yacht Charters!
I booked a sunset sail with Captain Eric for a group of girlfriends, and we had the best time! Eric's boat is an immaculate, beautiful classic sailboat, and sailing along the Hudson at sunset was absolutely magical! Captain Eric was super attentive to everyone's needs, and made sure that the group was comfortable and made recommendations on how where to sit on the boat to make the most of it.
The girls loved it, and we will definitely book with Captain Eric again soon!
My siblings and I surprised our mom with a sunset cruise of Manhattan's skyline as an early Mother's Day celebration. As jaded New Yorkers who love to be on the water, our ride on Captain Eric's gorgeous sailboat managed to exceed our expectations. He could not have been any warmer or passionate about sailing. He had fun facts to share about New York City and the environment. We lucked out with perfect weather and a view of a blood orange full moon. Capt. Eric also provides snacks/drinks and makes you feel at home on his actual floating home. I can't wait to go out on a longer day cruise with friends :) Definitely recommend!

I am a certified USCG Master Captain who's been sailing since in my mother's womb. I grew up sailing and have owned two sailboats since 2006. I own and run the top rated sailing charter company on New York Harbor.
Usually this boat operates around New York, NY.
It’s easy to forget that New York City is an island, and that its towering buildings create the beautiful Manhattan skyline when viewed from afar. Whether you’re visiting or you’re a jaded New Yorker looking to have fun on one of our Long Island fishing charters, Sailo has the perfect boat for you. Go sailing NYC: explore the lively area around North Cove Marina or plan a Manhattan dinner cruise to remember. You haven’t truly experienced the city until you try the New York attractions by boat.
