Together, the waterways are home to 165 different species of fish.

Taking a boat ride along the coast or the Erie Canal is one of the best ways to experience New York, and you don’t have to own a boat to enjoy this fantastic state. All types of watercrafts are available to rent, from cruising sailboats, yacht rentals, power boat hires, and pontoon boats to single-person kayaks and canoes.

    Manhattan Luxury Sailing to the Statue of Liberty

    Captain Martin and his First Mate Caleb were truly phenomenal to boat with. I booked this in order to propose to my significant other. Captain Martin called me a week in advance to discuss my plan and itinerary. He allowed my friends onboard prior to departure to set up the boat with some decorations as well and he was very understanding of the route I had chose and plan for proposal. My significant other was truly blown away! She and I loved every minute of the experience and the friendliness offered from these two outstanding gentlemen. We truly had an experience like no other despite the COVID-19 times we live in. Captain Martin was also understanding of my photographer, (@sphotoanddesign) and allowed him to take photographs from all angles. Overall a 10/10 experience, highly cost-effective, would recommend! Captain Martin will be my first choice if ever sailing again in NYC.

    38' SeaRay for New York Harbor

    Dirk and the Knotty Kitty were the perfect way to spend my 25th birthday with friends and family. The trip was better than we expected and I already booked another trip with Dirk for this week. We docked by the Statue of Liberty and got to enjoy the sunset over dinner. The charter back to dock at night was so scenic we were able to see the city in such an intimate way. I can not recommend Dirk and this boat enough! Thank you!!!
