Comments about Smart Destinations Clipper City Tall Ship Sails:

It was our first time in NYC. We started our visit with the clipper tour. It was really really very nice, very quiet. Not too many people on board, so you can go everywhere on the clipper. 1 hour and 40 minutes, good timing to see everything interesting,...because we need time for inside the city ! On the clipper, we felt like the time had stopped for us. Lots of boat were overloaded around the liberty statue. I could not imagine to take one of those... The choice is really not difficult. And last thing, of course we took a lot of pictures and with the sails, there were a lot of artistic photos to take ! We really had a great time !

What an awesome way to see NYC. I had never thought about going out on a Clipper Ship but when we saw it was part of the pass, we decided to do it. So glad we did. It was fantastic. The ship is beautiful and we really really loved the trip! Thank you Clipper City!
