    We really loved our sailing yesterday. Alan is an experienced skipper and we all felt safe in his charge. The boat is super as you would expect from a Swan design and set up for easy sailing. It is clean and ship-shape. Alan is a great host and good company. All in all a great half day cruise. We wished that we had taken a full day

    What a kind captain, fantastic boat and wonderful experience!

    Whether you're celebrating a birthday, looking for a hands on sailing experience or somewhere in between -- Captain Alan and the Wind Dancer is the boat for you! I can not say enough great things about this day out on this beautiful sailboat ... celebrating my brothers birthday and being avid boaters we were unsure what to expect. The beautiful day on the water far exceeded my expectations.

    Plenty of room below if you want to take a breather from the sun with a fully equipped area including a spacious fridge for drinks and food. An accommodative captain who helped keep the sandwiches chilled as well as the charter cruising ! We got to see a wide spread of coves and shoreline with Captain Alan using his sailing experience to create a path that fit our viewing goals for the day.

    Again, whether you're between boats or unsure where to begin --this is the boat for you! Such a wonderful time. We are already planning the next gorgeous day to get back on the water. Thank you Alan! See you again soon!

    Me and my friends had the best time on Alan’s boat! Alan was super responsive and organized when planning the boat. Once we were there he was a lot of fun and helped us have the best time possible! The boat was beautiful, and we were able to play music through his speakers, swim and use his rafts, and eat and drink on the boat. Overall great experience.

    Alan was so lovely sea captain and super professional and made us feel right at home on his well maintained sail boat. The kids had a blast with all his float toys and even took them out on his tender for a bit of tubbing fun!
    Alan was really knowledgeable about where to go and really created a lovely sailing experience for us all. Even the dogs have fun onboard, we are booking again in August.

    The sailboat was beautiful and well maintained. It was well equipped and comfortable. Alan, the Captain, was informative, professional, and an amazing teacher. He was fun, easy going, responsive, flexible and thorough in every way. Conversation flowed as if we were old friends and his passion for sailing was evident.

    Highly recommend!!!!

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Sag Harbor, 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.
