Hop An NYC Schooner For An Iron Chef's Harbor Cruise Dinner
Living in New York City is hard to do for many reasons; it's expensive, it's crowded, and it hurts to the core to leave near so much awesome water and not be able to take a boat out on it because you don't have a boat.
It's true; boating around Manhattan is a rich man's pastime, what with the cost of docking and maintenance. So instead those hankering to get out on the harbor turn to boat tours, but we're not talking about the Circle Line here. Instead, climb aboard one of two Schooners plying the NY waters: The Adirondack and the Imagine. they'll take you out for a true harbor sailing experience in very small groups for around $50 per person for the 2-hour tripand you can chose between daytime, sunset, or nighttime city lights.
Kick up a notch however by opting for the Morimoto Sushi and Sake Sail, which for $105 per person, includes the 2-hour sunset cruise plus a dinner of sushi and sake from iron chef Masaharu Morimoto. The sushi boat leaves on Monday nights through August from Chelsea Piers; pack your to-go chopsticks and buy tickets at their website.
