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!

Standing in the middle of Manhattan, it is easy to forget that the bustling heart of NYC is actually an island, but I was determined to explore the nautical side of this mighty city during this trip. Brooklyn Sail did not disappoint! The entire outing was magical and relaxing. I wouldn’t hesitate to book another excursion with them in the future. Out on the water, the noise of the city fades away and the beauty of the skyline dominates.

Such a fun activity and way to see New York! Got closer to the Statue of Liberty than expected. Relaxing and great photo opportunities. Highly recommend and will share with anyone going to New York!

Great sailing experience. Our favorite thing we did in the city during our week long stay. This is the best way to see the Statue of Liberty and other sights. Relaxing, safe and no crowds. Would recommend this as a "must do" when in NYC!

The description of the locations we would pass before hand was smart. It was really enjoyable to listen to the waves and be able to take in the experience. Thanks we will come back and do it again!

It was awesome seeing the city and landmarks from the water. The host and captain had great communication. We enjoyed how laid back and relaxing the sail was while being able to get up close to so many landmarks. Great value!

nothing compares to the up close and personal views you will get while on this sail while also not dealing with being crammed on some commercial tour boat. what a great way to experience the scale of New York! very expert boat handling made everything smooth and comfortable so we truly got to relax.
