Tribeca Sailing Is A Glamorous And Unsung Way To Take In Those Downtown Views

The most underrated way to experience New York City is on the water. Manhattan is, after all, an island, surrounded by water on all sides. The one-square mile neighborhood at the tip of the island, Lower Manhattan, is served by 17 commuter ferry routes traipsing across the Hudson and East rivers. Throw in Hornblower Cruises and the Staten Island Ferry, and there are countless ways to set sail. 

Then you have the prettiest boat in the harbor — a yacht named “Tara” — owned and operated by Captain Dave of Tribeca Sailing. Last week, our Explorer In Chief Josh Katz took a group of photographers out on an afternoon excursion. Captain Dave boarded the party at North Cove Marina in Lower Manhattan and then headed up the Hudson and around Lady Liberty. 

Even during such a cautiously optimistic post-pandemic period, Josh and friends felt absolutely comfortable during their ride and were thrilled by the glamorous New York City skyline and VIP experience. “The only thing more delightful than these views was Captain Dave’s banter,” Katz said. “As for ‘Tara,’ like some of my favorite restaurants, it’s also BYOB.”

Tribeca Sailing offers five sails a day, seven days a week.
