Join us for an unforgettable experience aboard America’s Environmental Flagship, and focus on the enjoyment of the river and the company of those on board. After raising the mainsail, the time you spend on board is yours.

Sailing aboard Clearwater creates a special experience that inspires and reconnects you to the river all while enjoying beautiful vistas of the Hudson Valley or the New York City skyline. While aboard, don’t forget to visit our crew at the fish tank to see some Hudson River Critters. Also, meet the Captain at the helm to take a turn on the tiller, and enjoy our traditional moment of silence broken by song before returning to the dock. Each sail is a journey to realize the beauty of the Hudson River Valley and learn more about Tall Ship sailing and local environmental concerns.

The Public Sail calendar is updated on a rolling basis throughout the sailing season. Clicking on an entry will take you to our Fareharbor booking platform. Please visit the Come Sailing page for additional information about all of our sailing options and answers to frequently asked questions.
