New Yorkers are known for their love of the Sunday brunch: bagels & lox, fresh fruit, pastries & croissants…I could go on. Another thing New Yorkers love is seeing the glorious Manhattan skyline on a clear, sunny day. With the Champagne Brunch Sail at Manhattan by Sail they can do both. I recently went on one of the brunch sails with my husband as a “daytime date” and we both loved the experience!
The Shearwater Classic Schooner is a beautiful sailboat that was hand built in 1929.
The spread was gorgeous, fresh and delicious. There was enough selection even for vegetarians, like my husband and pescatarians, like me. There was yogurt parfaits, croissants, quiches, fresh fruit & veggies, lox, bagels with cream cheese, butter and jelly, wraps, mini brioche sandwiches, champagne, mimosas, oj, coffee, tea and more.
The food was constantly replenished by the friendly staff.
There’s unlimited champagne so my husband and I indulged ourselves with mimosas.
Here are some of the incredible views:
The captain and crew:
We ended the sail on a sweet note with a platter of muffins and danishes.The Brunch Sail departs every Sunday at 11am until October 26th (The Shearwater will return on April 26, 2015). Sail lasts two hours and costs $95 per person.
I was not compensated for this post. I received a complimentary sail.
