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!

Ian was an amazing captain for our group. The weather was amazing our day so I can't comment on winter days but the boat was nice enough that a comfy blanket and coats would have been great too. He was very skilled and navigated the waters like he was born doing it. The boat has an on board bathroom and inside part in case someone gets too cold. We brought wine and charcuterie for added effect. The instagram was amazing to say the least

What an amazing way to experience the city! We did a “sunset” ride with Ian and it was worth every penny. He is a master sailor and was very knowledgeable about the areas we toured through. Ian was super easy to coordinate with and gave us recommendations on what to wear and what to bring so we would be most comfortable. Our group felt safe and relaxed the entire sail, and we really enjoyed taking in all of the views. Ian let us do our thing- we had snacks, drinks, and the music playing! Our pictures are great and these memories will last us a lifetime. Thank you, Ian, for allowing us to experience the beautiful city in such a unique way!

Ian gave us an absolutely magical sailing experience. Definitely worth every penny and I highly recommend this experience for all. We did the 4-630 time slot and got to see the breathtaking sunset. Ian was awesome and we loved everything about the sailboat.
