What you'll do

You will board the boat and immediately be given your first beer. You will be asked to listen to a brief safety orientation before motoring off the dock and setting sails. You can participate and help raise sails or just go ahead and sip your beer.

Whether you are a beer connoisseur or just love to lift a pint with friends, you're going to love this one-of-a-kind craft beer tasting adventure. Taste five outstanding ales and lagers from premiere local brewers in New York City while you drink in the magnificent views of the skyline of NYC. Hosted directly with the brewers themselves on board to be your beer guide, you can't get a more personal introduction to their beers and motivations for their beers.

We will sail for approx. 90 minutes; by the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island and be treated to stunning vistas of the most famous skyline in the world in one of the world's premier harbors. Great tunes will accompany you and you will return to Manhattan transported with a laid-back & peaceful mindset, ready to enjoy the rest of your day.

I will be your host; but don't worry, a local gypsy brewery will lead the tasting with a hyper-local vibe..

I hold USCG 100-ton captain's licenses; I have been sharing my love of sailing (& drinking!) aboard large vintage schooners under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty & the NY Skyline with locals & visitors to NY for the past 19 years.

I am born & raised in NYC and first began volunteering aboard historic sailboats here in NY Harbor approx. 30 yrs ago. My boat, CLIPPER CITY, is a 158' replica of a pre-Civil War Era boat built in 1854; she sailed until 1892. She was the fastest & largest ship of her day.

I'm proud to offer an intimate, casual experience here in NY harbor as an alternative to the large ferry boat sightseeing trips to the Statue. Come down & enjoy a little part of NYC's history.

The description of this experience is misleading, which is unfortunate because I wouldn't have booked it had I known it would be more of a general, touristy sail around the Statue of Liberty. There were no brewers there offering "personal introduction to their beers and motivations for their beers," nor did we meet Tom. Nothing wrong with that; just not what we were looking for. I also think the way Tom and the third party company he worked with were a bit sketchy in their communication. When the initial gypsy craft beer event was rescheduled, we were told that we'd get a "free upgrade" to the same event, but with some food, later that afternoon. That turned out to be untrue. In addition, we were informed of this rescheduling 15 minutes before the event was supposed to begin -- and by an email, not through Airbnb, from that third party company.

Fantastic Experience - Clipper City is a fantastic way to see the Statue of Liberty. Throw in the beer tasting and this really is a one off not to be missed during your time in NYC

Everything was great! Such a good idea to organize this kind of event - it combines sailing wild atmosphere, sightseeing (especially when the weather is sunny) and craft beer! Beer in glass, wind in hair, a lot of fun. Absolutely recommend

It is fun to ride on a Skipper boat watching men pulling the ropes rhythmically.
