    Could not have been a better experience. Captain Dave was friendly, accommodating, knowledgable and a brilliant host. We had a truly wonderful morning on board and saw some of the best sites NYC has to offer. We had small children with us and Dave was brilliant at making them feel welcome and at home and safe on board.

    We had such a fun time celebrating a friend's birthday on the boat! Captain Dave was extremely accommodating and even let us decorate the boat. He was also very flexible because we had to move up our reservation time in order to not get caught in a storm. I totally recommend sailing with Captain Dave, he's the best!

    Captain Dave was great and so was the boat! We had a beautiful day and saw some amazing sights. I'm a local New Yorker and had never even seen my city so beautiful!
    Dave did a great job answering my questions before during and after!

    Capitan Dave was the best in helping me to surprise my girlfriend with the proposal on the boat. Our sail was amazing and beautiful. Captain Dave made it enjoyable and unforgettable. The boat was spotlessly clean, cozy and romantic. We had the best time of our lives.
