CANCELLATION
Can I reschedule my sail? You are allowed one reschedule 72 hours or before your sailing reservation. No reschedules are allowed within 72 hours of your reservation.

Hi my name is Ian. I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years and love to share my joy of sailing and nature with guests. I'm the owner of Enchantress, a beautiful 1994 Catalina 34 sailboat. I have a USCG (United States Coast Guard) Master sailing license, I'm certified in CPR, and have spent years living and sailing around the Atlantic East Coast. I once solo sailed the Bahamas for a Winter and had friends visit me along the way. I look forward to meeting you and going out for a sail around NY Harbor!

My sister and I purchased this experience for my Dad's birthday in the spring. We had to change our plans last minute and pick a new day. The process was easy and Ian was more than accommodating. It was a beautiful day, a seamless ride with our Captain Andrew, Ian's brother, and a great way to spend time together as a family. It was the three of us and two other people who came separately. Great COVID friendly experience. We'd love to come back and will be telling friends and family about this!

We booked the group sailing tour as a birthday surprise for a friend and had an incredible sunset/night sail. We had a great time chatting with Ian and the other guests during the boat ride. There were many fantastic areas to take photos and Ian was clearly very knowledgeable about advising us when it would be best to move to the front of the sailboat for photos. We would highly recommend booking this trip!

The sailing was beautiful and magical especially when the sunset behind the Statue of Liberty! I would recommend to anyone who’s coming to New York and to do experience!

This is a must-do experience. Ian gets you so close to the most beautiful site lines of the incredible structures in the harbor. I am definitely doing this again!

Fantastic tour. My friends and I live locally, and booked the tour for a small birthday excursion. Ian is very easy to talk to and get along with, and our group was able to enjoy the snacks and drinks we brought on board without issue. More spacious than I anticipated, and great amenities down below. Would recommend to anyone — visitors and locals alike.
