What you'll do

We'll meet by the marina to say hello and to go over all the necessary safety information such as how to use a life jacket and where they are located on the boat. I will explain all the safety features of Enchantress (the sailboat), and answer any questions regarding the tour. After that we board the boat and set sail! After exiting the marina we make our way around Governor's Island with views of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, and the Brooklyn Bridge. In general the sailing will be pretty light so expect to mostly relax, enjoy the sail, and get some amazing photos. I will be on the sailboat to take photos of you at various moments while you see New York from a sailboat. The total trip should take around two and half hours. After going back around governor's island we will return to the marina where everyone will disembark the boat and exit the marina. There will be up to six passengers on the sail.

Ian

Hi my name is Ian. I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years and love to share my joy of sailing and nature with up to six 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 and photographing you while I take you for a sail around NY Harbor.
