What people are saying about Ellis Island

Absolutely brilliant. Great boat lovely crew. Provided drink, blankets if required and lots of information. They couldn’t have been more welcoming. The views of both the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty were superb and we did most of the trip under sail power which was a wonderful bonus. Heartily recommend. Thank you Kat, Levi and Carly!

Staff were all very professional and friendly. No tourist site announcements explaining the sites during the sailing so it's very peaceful & you can just enjoy the scenery & complimentary drink. Staff were avail to explain or answer site seeing questions & offered to take pics for us. Would highly recommend this sailing trip.

Great tour, definitely recommend it. You get a bit of everything with the cheese/champagne and sightseeing boat ride. Staff was great and friendly. For someone who hates crowded tourist attractions and tours, this was a great experience.
