I puurchased full price tickets ($40) and then recieved an email from this company offering me tickets at half price ($20) for the same tour on the same date. When I called to either get a reduction on the tickets I bought, or at least get credit with the company, they said no. They explained that they ALWAYS have discounted tickets so they ALWAYS reject requests from people who had the bad luck to buy full price tickets. So don't buy full price tickets - you'll be on a boat with people who paid half as much as you.

The sailboat fit about 13 customers and the three members of the crew. The crew was very friendly and served us drinks (wine, beer, apple cider) and gave us blankets to keep warm. They checked in with us periodically if we needed anything. If you plan on going on this sailboat, definitely grab a few blankets or bring a winter coat (I went in mid-October), because the water is much colder than land. Even the captain of the boat was wearing a winter coat and hat. We got to see much of the skyline but not all, as we zig-zagged around only a portion of the Hudson for about two hours. Overall, the sailing gives you a nice view of a portion of the city. The pier is located in Chelsea. It is walkable from subway stops. If you do not go by car, you have to walk across a highway, but it is not that busy.

I have gone out before with this company, and have always enjoyed myself, but this year I spent my holiday Thanksgiving dinner aboard the Yacht Manhattan. It was one of the most heart warming experiences that I have had in a long time. The yacht was warm and cozy. The food was delicious and plenty. But the thing that stuck out most is how this company created an atmosphere that felt like family. I was sitting down at a table that had other couples at the table...at first I thought this was intimidating, but within minutes, everyone was laughing, and I felt like I was in the company of friends from the past. The crew had smiles and helped with whatever was needed. This experience was beautiful. Who knew, Thanksgiving on the water in manhattan. The views were stunning. This company has my heart, this is what companies should be like. A half hour into the cruise the boat turned around to go back to the dock to pick up some later comers...we all cheered as the couple jumped aboard....I have never had a company care so much about helping their customers..THANK YOU CLASSIC HARBOR LINE...I am looking forward do cruising more with you, and I am looking forward to having a new experience when your schooner comes down.
Warmly,
A Stunned, satisfied customer.

We went on a brunch sail on the yacht Manhattan for New Year's Day. Despite the fact that it was raining and the fog was as thick as pea soup, we had a fantastic time! The brunch buffet was pretty good - hot quiche, sausage, and waffles, as well as salad, fresh fruit, smoked salmon, bagels, etc. more than I expected from the description on their website. Even the coffee was pretty good. There is also a full bar - I only had one drink, so I'm not certain if more than one drink was included in the ticket price.

The yacht is very pretty - a glassed in room with banquettes and tables so every seat is a good seat. Even the bathrooms were nice! Our cruise had about 30 people, half groups and half couples, so you could mix if you wanted or find a corner to be alone in. The staff was great - very friendly and informative. (Note, this is not a "tour guide" cruise, so don't expect to get the history of NYC.)

Our cruise went north from Chelsea Piers, up between Manhattan and the Bronx, then down the Harlem and East Rivers, past the Statue of Liberty and back up to Chelsea. Despite the fog, we really enjoyed the whole experience - both the pleasant atmosphere inside the boat, as well as hanging out on deck and seeing the city from a totally different view. We definitely want to go again!

About 10 friends and I went on the evening boat ride to celebrat our friend's birthday. We didn't rent the whole boat out, but we were able to sit together and it worked-out great. Everyone loved it (even those who were skeptical at first). The $45 fee was worth it especially since you get beer/wine included (although the service is not very speedy so don't expect to get more than 3/4 drinks). We brought our own cheese and crackers which made the experience complete. The views were amazing. I would highly recommend.
