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.
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 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!
