Head to Battery Park to board the Clipper City, your classic sailing vessel for the afternoon. This 158-foot-long (48-meter) tall ship is a replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove the American lumber industry more than a century ago, and can comfortably fit 150 people – the most of any passenger sailboat in the United States.
Take a seat or relax on the wrap-around deck as you set sail along New York Harbor. If you're up for it, you can even help raise the sails or take a turn at the helm! Then, enjoy fantastic views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Brooklyn Heights skyline, the Red Hook neighborhood, Battery Park, the Manhattan Bridge and the Manhattan skyline before heading toward the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
During your sail, you’ll be served six types of craft beers from breweries all over New York such as Brooklyn Brewery, KelSo of Brooklyn, Fire Island Beer Company, Southampton Publick House, Ithaca Beer Company, Empire Brewing Company, Lake Placid Brewery, Keegan Ales and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company. These crisp, cold ales and lagers are all handpicked from your expert host, so you know you're tasting some of the best beer in New York.
Pair your tastings with cheese and charcuterie sourced from a popular Brooklyn shop specializing in high-end, unique cheeses and meats. Tastings vary week to week, but generally include a variety of meats, medium-soft and hard cheeses, plus dried fruits, nuts and cornichons.
Savor the last of your relaxing afternoon on the water as you finish up your tastings and make your way back to Battery Park.
