If cycling isn’t your thing, and you prefer to have someone else do the hard work for you, a sailing trip also hits the spot. We set off from North Cove Marina with Tribeca Sailing for an idyllic ride around the New York Harbour, past Ellis Island, the Freedom Tower and, of course, getting close enough for the perfect picture of the Statue of Liberty.
Living in by the seaside in Brighton, we do lots of sailing as a family, so we were very excited to book a private sail cruising New York Harbor, as part of our trip. We couldn’t recommend Captain David and his team at Tribeca Sailing more. The classic sailboat was beautiful and David was an absolute fountain of knowledge – showing us the sights of the city from the water, including Ellis Island, The Statue of Liberty, New Jersey and the buildings of Manhattan. Once he realised Rhys and Gareth were good sailors, he let them take the helm, which made their week! We took one of our biggest vendors with us, who commented that it was one of the best brand meetings she’d ever had. So we’d definitely recommend it if you’re taking clients out in the city. It’s also a great activity for families and a really unique and special way to see New York.

Sydney, Hong Kong, Rio de Janiero… every harbor city should be seen from land & sea, but especially New York City.
