Set sail this summer with Classic Harbor Line and see the beauty of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and more aboard one of their many breathtaking boats.

I joined Downtown Pawblisher Barclay Hudson on a 3:30 pm cruise on the deck of the 80-foot-long Adirondack, which was manned by Captain Chris and his crew. Although dogs are not typically allowed on CHL trips, they make an exception for him whenever he wants to go out on the water.

During our relaxing two-hour getaway, we had a perfect sea breeze and were provided three complimentary beverages. We were up close and personal with Lady Liberty, accompanied by calming waves.

Midway through our trip, the crew put up a rainbow-patterned flag to mark the beginning of Pride Week, as CHL is in full support of the LGBT community.

Whether you’re a New York local or just visiting, don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to see some classic sights.

Classic Harbor Line offers cruises at 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm aboard the Adirondack with a base price of $52 and voyages on other boats for varying prices.
