“July Sail in New York Harbor -- Delightful!”

Calypso Sailing Adventures
Reviewed 6 August 2017

We booked a 2-hour afternoon sail on the Calypso for our family of 4. We lucked out with the weather -- it was gorgeous, with sunny skies and perfect wind conditions. Captain Randy let us "take the helm" and really feel the boat beneath us. He is an excellent sailor, which on a busy weekend afternoon of maritime activity in New York Harbor is essential!

There are only a handful of operators in the Liberty State Park area offering sailing charters for small groups. We checked out all the reviews on TA and chose the Calypso for its ideal size (35 feet) and favorable pricing ($300 cash for 4 pax). Other choices ranged from 30% to 100% higher for boats not much larger.

The Calypso is most comfortable, in our opinion, with up to 4 people in the cockpit plus Captain Randy. We liked the little bit of extra room to change our seats and enjoy the views as he busily trimmed the sails and came about throughout the cruise. It was a fun adventure on a glorious day that we will always remember.

I've been in NYC for over a decade and can easily say that our cruise on the Calypso was one of the most fun outings in all that time. Captain Randy is welcoming, knowledgable and extremely attentive. His his passion for sailing is infectious. I can't wait to book another trip ASAP. A trip on the Calypso is an INCREDIBLE way to see NYC in all it's glory.
