Wat je gaat doen

An estuary nearly twice the area of Manhattan lays before us. Here on the very edge of NYC we will set sail upon Jamaica Bay; a realm that exists within yet without the rest of New York city. Pop a bottle, soak up the sunset, stretch out and catch some ray's. You can even help sail the boat and learn a bit. The world is your oyster. Within a hundred yards distance from the dock the signs of civilization start to fade away. Lush greenery dominates the landscape as we are flanked on both sides by wild parkland. Eventually the waters widen before us as we enter into Jamaica Bay proper. Directly to our north is Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge; the green heart of the bay. Grassy marshland and deserted islands interlaced with myriad channels are within reach. Ospreys, hawks, herons, and egrets are but a few of the birds that you can spy via the boats binoculars. If you'd like to get your feet wet or do a little shore-side exploration then we can drop anchor at one of several secluded areas. Swimming is an option. There are also 4 different restaurants with docks where you can grab a drink or call in an order to bring aboard. My boat, the Norfolk Oyster, is as safe and stable as she is beautiful, but it should be known that sailing is best undertaken by the able bodied & optimistic individual.
Other things to note
It only takes 2 people to fully reserve the whole boat! However, I can comfortably accomadate a party of four. Please message me and I will adjust the price settings so you can sign up extra people. I can also add custom times for you upon request.

Hi, my name is Sean and I'll be your Captain aboard the sailboat "Christina". Ill also be your guide to Jamaica Bay; its history and natural environment. Perhaps I'll be your off-the-cuff sailing instructor if you fancy. Maybe I won't be anything at all while you tune out to the sound of the water lapping against the side of the hull.
I grew up in the sailing community of Port Washington, New York on Long Island Sound. Ive sailed, drifted and motored on waters ranging from Penobscot Bay in Maine to the windward islands in the Caribbean. For the last ten years I've been sailing on my 17 ft. Norfolk Oyster sloop "Christina"; exploring Jamaica bay and loving it's consistent winds, calm waters, and natural surroundings.
But theres more! I hold a United States Coast Guard captains license (oupv) and a NYS Boating Safety Certification.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will spend most of the experience sailing aboard the "Christina" in the eastern and central portions of Jamaica Bay. We can sail along the grassy marshes of the wildlife refuge, under the A train bridge or get a close look at the flying planes of JFK airport. We can pull the boat up to one of several little remote beaches to explore the shore or go swimming. We can dock the boat at a restaurant and grab a drink or food to bring on the boat.

A rare escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sean's sailboat is a gorgeous, cozy vessel, which was perfect for a short getaway for me and my wife on her birthday. Would also be a great time with a few friends on a nice summer day.

Sean is a lovely host. His quiet presence makes you feel safe and comfortable. He has lots of knowledge and interesting anecdotes. He’s so relaxed, you can't help but relax too. This experience is really a hidden gem in this urban landscape. We had perfect weather, musical geese and strangely beautiful backdrop! If you like laud back and unusual, this is for you!!!

It was magical to watch the sun set over the water while planes took off from JFK directly above us. My boyfriend works at the airport, so this sunset sail, booked only hours before, was a wonderful birthday surprise for him and provided a totally different and hard to come by perspective of the place he goes every day. Sean has calming energy and his boat is small and charming. I’d highly recommend this experience to anyone, and to aviation nerds in particular.

My wife and I truly loved this experience. We live in New York and we wanted to try something different, far from Manhattan. The main things we liked are: 1) The boat is cozy, and if you book for two people you can have the full boat for you. That felt really special 2) The sunset was pretty spectacular, and we felt we completely disconnected from the chaos of Manhattan 3) Last but not least, Sean is an amazing host. We had very nice conversations and he even gave us a car ride to a restaurant, after the experience. Overall, strongly recommended.

I would highly recommend this experience to anyone that's wanting a personal yacht boat ride. Enjoy a bottle of red with some cheese platters and you are good to go.

We were so intrigued that we booked two trips, and Sean made them unforgettable. We maneuvered ( by sail, and, when necessary, by motor ) through the grassy canals just beyond the international runways of Kennedy Airport. To see three great blue herons ( normally solitary birds ) erupt from the grass, and then, moments later, feel a jet roar it’s takeoff overhead, was exhilarating. On the second trip, Sean suggested I indulge the love of fishing I had described. Minutes after I began trolling a lure, my seven foot rod was pretzeled into a quivering parabola, as I fought what turned out to be a toothy bluefish. The pictures of me and my catch continue to delight. Easygoing, affable and smart, Sean seasoned the relaxing rhythms of sailing with the condiment of wit. We have done guided fishing trips from the Finger Lakes to Orlando, Florida, and Sean offered a unique experience we will treasure.
