I am a passionate sailor, boat owner and USCG licensed captain. I started sailing as a boy on the south shore of Long Island where I learned how to race. I've managed a sailing school and I am also a professional sailing instructor. I love taking people out on my boat as it allows me to combine my passion for sailing and my dream of introducing people to the art and enjoyment of being on the water.
Simply great - David was so nice and the boat is absolutely beautiful. We had fantastic time celebrating my husband’s birthday.
We enjoyed a wonderful 3 hour sail with Captain David. He was attentive and kept us well informed about the weather. It ended up being a beautiful day. We will for sure be back for another sail!
We went on a 2 hour sail for our anniversary and it was perfect. David is fun to talk to and very knowledgeable about the city, and accommodating...gave us a Bluetooth speaker for music, a cooler bag, cups etc. Vibes were great and we will definitely be back!
Our trip with David was great! Smooth sail in a beautiful and well kept boat. Definitely recommend the captain well - very nice, upbeat, responsive and responsible making sure everyone knew the dos and don'ts of sailing. Recommend the trip and would definitely book another sail! Thanks David for a great birthday sail! :)
Was the perfect afternoon on the water. Captain Dave was tremendous and we will definitely be back!
My wife and I rented for a sunset cruise for our anniversary and everything was perfect. Amazing boat and captain. Very easily accessible slip. Highly recommended!
Me and my wife took a trip for our anniversary and everything was perfect. Highly recommended.
We had a magnificent trip. The ship is beautiful and the captain is great !
Highly recommended !
The Tara is beautiful and unique. Quite a bit of fun. Terrific for small groups. Captain Dave knows the boat and the waters very well , and is pretty gifted at finding a wind to sail on when everyone else appears becalmed. Great experience.
It was a great experience! David was so nice, patient, and professional. He's very cooperative throughout the whole process. The boat is lovely, tidy and beautiful! We will definitely consider it again in future.
David contacted me very quickly after I had email him. He is very attentive and friendly. His boat "TARA" is cozy and comfortable we had a very memorable sailing afternoon along lower Manhattan. The accommodations were great for our family. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a sailing tour in NYC.
My family is still talking about our "Black Friday" 2015 sailing excursion while they were visiting NYC for the holidays. Captain David was skilled not only at sailing, but offered us very interesting stories and history as we sailed the Hudson and East River. So fun. Also, the Hinckley boat was simply spectacular! Every aspect of our day was "ship-shape" start to finish! Glorious experience!
This was a surprise birthday gift for my boyfriend and it was a huge success. Captain David was absolutely wonderful. Very knowledgable, helpful and genuine. Would certainly recommend!
