I will be your Captain and Rain will be your first mate. I grew up with a connection to the sea and worked on boats in the summer. We have traveled the world and are now based in NY. Cat Boats were built to be sailed in NY and I have developed a passion for navigating the waters of NYC Harbor. We are appreciative to be part of this sea tale.

Message me to request unlisted dates and times.

If you see a trip on the calendar that is listed for $140 that is a Statue of Liberty trip. That trip is 3 hours, returning one hour later then the time listed, we will travel under BMW (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg) bridges and get close to the Statue of Liberty.

Where you'll be

We'll meet in Greenpoint Brooklyn where we'll depart from and return to. The S.S. Options is a Crosby Cat Boat built by the Crosby brothers of Cape Cod in 1932.
Catboats are uniquely American and are as much a part of America’s history as the Model T Ford or the Wright Brother's first flight.

This experience was so memorable and beautiful, totally worth it! We were able to see a side of manhattan and queens that you can’t see within the city, the beauty and serenity was awesome. Nathaniel and Rain were super nice and had a lot of knowledge of the area which made it much more pleasant and enjoyable. Definitely a go to when in New York!

We had the *best time with Nathanial and Rain on their sailboat. To celebrate my sister's engagement we booked a night on the water for four friends. We had a later flight and our hosts were really accommodating as we requested a custom departure time. Leading up to our scheduled excursion, they were very responsive and quick to answer questions and communicate with us. On the evening of our private sail, Nathanial and Rain made us feel so comfortable. It was a beautiful, intimate boat and we quickly felt like we were out sailing with friends. Seeing the city skyline lit up at night from the water was a perfect way to explore on our first night. My sister LOVED it and it was an awesome surprise that she will always remember! The experience was great. Rain and Nathanial are great. We will definitely recommend this experience to our New York friends and to those who visit.

This was really an amazing experience! It was a rainy day so we were unsure whether we should cancel but then it was a unique experience seeing the skyline in the fog from the boat on the calm water. Nathanial was super nice and welcoming, he told us lots of stories and let us explore the boat, i.a. by climbing on it. We ran a bit late in the beginning but Nathanial took the time afterwards to give us the full experience we were looking for. I cannot thank him enough and recommend doing this trip with him!

It was a very special and great experience to make this trip and it was a pleasure to meet Nathaniel with his nice little boat. Although we had a quiet rainy day the trip with Nathaniel was fantastic and unforgettable. He let us see some very special views to the Skyline of Manhattan, to Roosevelt Island and to Williamsburg. We enjoyed this evening very much - THANKS a lot, Nathaniel - and we would highly recommend everyone to join this fantastic trip!
