Practical information

What if it rains?

Sailing is an all-weather activity, and Manhattan by Sail’s boats leave the dock rain or shine. Summer thundershowers are part of life in New York and you’ll soon see that braving the elements with the safe and reliable crew is all part of the fun! If you are a fair-weather sailor, no worries, just be sure to give the reservation and rescheduling policies a read.

What if I get seasick?

New York Harbor is one of the most protected waterways in the world, so generally speaking, seasickness isn’t much of a concern. Some people are more susceptible to it than others, however. If you think you might be one of them, we recommend taking Dramamine (or any similar over-the-counter motion sickness drug-containing dimenhydrinate). Keep in mind that Dramamine takes about two hours to take full effect so if you’re taking them on board, it’s too late. Ginger capsules have also been found to be helpful. If you do get seasick, the crew will do everything they can to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.

Are beverages served on board?

We’re sailors! Of course we serve drinks – it comes with the territory. The bar on board offers drink service featuring a selection of beer, wine, simple mixed drinks as well as a delightful new line of NYC produced canned cocktails. Also available on both boats is an array of non-alcoholic choices such as water, soda, and juice.

Do you accept credit cards on the boat?

Yes! All major U.S. credit cards are accepted onboard both boats.

Do you serve food? Can we bring our own?

Yes on both counts. We have a host of food options waiting for you when you board. But if the mood strikes and you want to pack the old picnic basket, go right ahead. However, excepting sails that include food in the program, we will have a limited selection of food available for purchase onboard.

Are your boats handicapped accessible?

Yes! We believe sailing should be accessible to all!! Any concerns, please reach out to us regarding special accommodations or for larger electric scooters and wheelchairs. If you have the will to join, we will figure out the way to get you aboard.

What are the seating options?

There are places to sit on both boats, though your ticket does not guarantee it. Historic boats are operated with authentic on-deck fixtures. There is limited proper seating as well as deck boxes.

Are lifejackets required?

Nope, except for passengers who are 12 years & under. ​No one else is required to wear a life jacket but you’re welcome to one if you’d like

Can we bring our own beverages on board?

Due to liquor licenses, we are not able to have customers bring their own alcoholic beverages onboard.

Can I help raise the sails?

Yes! We gladly welcome our passengers to get in on the action and help us raise the sails.

Are strollers/bikes allowed on the boat?

Yes, you can bring strollers aboard the boats, however, we do not allow bikes on any of our boats.

Are pets allowed on board?

Small dogs who are happy to sit on leash & on laps are welcome on board, with advance notice.
