Our Charter last night was an absolute DREAM! In addition to being expert sailors, Jonathan and Kyle were consummate hosts - they pleasantly refilled drinks, played great tunes, and made sure everyone was having a nice time. It was a very relaxed 2 hours, and they occasionally "interrupted" conversation (in quotes because it was welcome) to point out particularly beautiful views, special features, and fun architectural highlights. We can't wait to get out on the water again!

We chartered a sailboat from Atlantic Yachting to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and we had a fantastic time. Logan (the captain) was the best. Really interesting and fun to spend a couple hours with. We sailed down the Hudson and back - a 2 hour trip. It was a little cold so we were given blankets to cozy up in. We brought lunch and everything was served to us. It felt so special. We would definitely take a trip with Atlantic Yachting and have already told lots of friends!! Thanks AY for making the day so special for us!!

The best birthday present of all time! The crew was very friendly and welcoming. They gave us the choice between sailing and using the motor. Sailing without the motor was extremely peaceful. I will definitely use Atlantic Yachting for any future sailing trips and lessons!

There is no other sailing service in NYC that is as pleasant to sail with as Atlantic Yachting. Their website is incredibly easy to use for booking a private charter (or sailing lessons), which was the first indication to me that these guys are professional and know what they're doing. My suspicions were confirmed when we arrived at the Boat Basin and were led to the boat by Mariette, who continued to provide excellent service for our 3-hour Mother's Day sail. It's BYOB and BYOF(ood), but they handle putting out drinks and food with utensils, etc. Very attentive service and very relaxed atmosphere.
The boat itself is beautiful, and our captain Jonathan was an absolute pleasure to sail with. He let us steer the boat and had a fun talk with us, but he also let us alone to do our own thing. It was just so relaxing. They also have an excellent sound system on the boat and we played our own music the whole time.
It is not worth looking anywhere else if you want a peaceful and professional experience. These guys know what they're doing and will take great care of you. My family and I cannot wait to find an excuse to go sailing again with them.
