Javier is a great captain! Knowledgeable and friendly, our family had a great time sailing around Manhattan and watching the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks show. Would highly recommend for a small group looking to sail around NYC.
Javier was fantastic. Very welcoming, friendly and calm. He navigated our boat expertly and even managed to retrieve an item that went overboard. Great experience.
Javier was an excellent captain. He was polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. His Catalina 270 was in impeccable condition and he made us feel at home. Javier runs the entire boat while you sit back, have a drink, and enjoy the sunset. We really enjoyed our boat ride, and will be sending our friends to him in the future!
Javier was an excellent captain!! He was very responsive and helpful. My mom had an excellent time for her birthday and I truly appreciate having Javier assistance towards making her day unforgettable. The boat fit all five of us very comfortably , I would highly recommend booking with Javier.
boat was great !
Javier is the consumate gentleman. I chartered the sail for my daughter's 16th birthday! I was very comfortable with entrusting Javier with the wellbeing of myself and my family. We thoroughly enjoyed his boating knowledge and company. He even accommodated us by picking us up from one of our FAVORITE restaurants- Hudson Water Club, W. Haverstraw, NY. I Highly recommend Javier!!!
What an amazing sail we had with our family for my husband’s 50th birthday. The owner was so friendly and patient. Prior to the sail, he send us a text to explain what we can bring onboard. He met us at the marina and talked to us every step of the way so we can have a nice time and feel comfortable! The boat was perfect for a serene sail!
I had a wonderful time with my children and brother aboard's Javier sailboat. Javier was very pleasant and courteous. He was very responsive and answered all my questions timely and honestly, which was very helpful during my planning and decision. I highly recommend sailing with Javier.
Javier was fantastic! His boat was great and he couldn’t have been nicer and easier to deal with! Highly recommended!
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 West Haverstraw, 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.
