Classic Harbor Line will be closely adhering to the guidelines set forth by the Passenger Vessel Association, who cites the CDC guidelines and gives specific guidance to our industry on how to safely operate under Covid-19 conditions.

Additionally, we will be following the NY State Reopening guidelines as they pertain to our industry. Please also note that the guidelines we adopt may be changed over time by governing authorities and we will therefore adjust accordingly. For any major changes, our previously booked guests will be notified.


Do I have to wear a mask the entire time? Presently masks are required at all times. This is subject to change as new phases rollout in New York City.

What is the air ventilation like? All seating on the schooners is in open air on the outer decks. All seating areas in the main salons of the Manhattans, Full Moon & Kingston will have windows open as much as possible.

How much space is between me and the next person? This will vary based on attendees. Do note that facial masks are required by each guest, capacity is reduced by 50%, and private ‘zones’ or private ‘tables’ will be designated.

Can I choose my assigned ‘Zone’ or ‘Table’? Our ticketing system will space bookings as they come in based on size. You can make requests (i.e. port, starboard, forward, etc.), and we will do our best to accommodate you, but cannot guarantee it will be available. All Tickets on the Manhattans will be assigned to ‘tables’ in the main salons. All tickets on the schooners will be assigned to ‘zones’ on the open deck. All tickets on Full Moon or Kingston will be assigned to sitting areas, prioritizing covered seating areas first.

Can we move around the boat? If on the Manhattans, can we go to the outer forward deck? Yes. Please just be courteous of others, creating the best case social distancing practices.

How many guests will be on the boat? All excursions will be at a 50% capacity or less. Adirondack, which is certified for 49, will have no more than 24 guests. Manhattan II will have 32 to 56 Guests as her max capacity depending on the group sizes who book. If you opt for a ‘Public Buy Out’ it will just be you and your group.

How often is the boat sanitized? The boat is sanitized between every sail, including all high-touch points (handrails, doorknobs, chairs, table tops) and bathrooms.

Can I eat on the boat? In the early stages of reopening NYC, on board food consumption will likely be prohibited. If you pre-purchased any food with us, it will be refunded. Please plan to eat prior to or after your excursion. No outside alcohol is permitted. We encourage you to bring your own water.

School Notes: For your security, at check-in, you are required to present a valid photo identification that must be identical to the contact name listed on your booking.

Champagne Sunset Cruise on Classic 1920s-Style Yacht
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/1/2020
My husband and I felt slightly misled by the title of this cruise, and the promotional material we received. Given that the name of your company is “Coursehorse”, and the emails we received were from your “Education” Coordinator, we thought we would learn something on this sunset cruise—something about champagne perhaps, or something about the sights we were cruising past. We are both born-and-bred New Yorkers, so we pretty much knew about all the buildings and landmarks we sailed past, but there was absolutely no commentary from the crew as we sailed, and the “Champagne” part, was nothing more than an offer of a free drink (which could have been champagne, or many other options.). Basically, we were on a sunset cruise that offered champagne. We happened to sail on a beautiful night, with a beautiful sunset, but that was a gift from Mother Nature, not your company. Overall, it was a disappointing experience. A. Layden

We loved the friendly staff. The boat was gorgeous and clean. We loved that it wasn’t too crowded and we were able to have a romantic corner spot to ourselves. Thanks for a magical evening!
