Don’t think twice – Book it

My task was to find a fall foliage Hudson cruise for our group. After some research I found Nyack Boat Charters and my find was great.

I chose them based on the reviews and it got better each step of the way. Any questions prior to booking and up to the departure were all clearly answered in a timely fashion. The staff is helpful and very welcoming.

These young men who took us out, Kevin and Owen, were extremely mature, informative and friendly. I felt 100% safe in their hands.

The boat was immaculate and very inviting. A great time!!!

All you have to do is provide people who want to have fun and they make the rest happen. Can’t wait to go back.

Birthday Surprise

I booked the sunset sail as a surprise for my husband’s birthday, he loved it!! It was a great experience sailing with the crew. They were very welcoming and professional.

There was also a nice group of people on board. The yacht was clean and modern. It is just as pictured on their website.

Complimentary wine and snacks were served on board. I would highly recommend them without a doubt.

There is no place like Home

I find it ironic that growing up in Rockland County, NY I couldn’t wait for the day to leave and live in NYC and travel to foreign lands. It only took me traveling the globe to realize how incredible my hometown is. I keep going back and discovering new things to do.
.
Yesterday, I partnered with @visitnyack and @nyackboatcharter to re-discover the beautiful waterfront town of Nyack. It’s only 30 minutes from Midtown Manhattan and you can get that dose of nature you’re craving without having to travel far.
.
Doug from @nyackboatcharter took a group of us out on the Hudson River for a sunset cruise and I was in my happy place on the water. We tasted local craft beer from @industrialartsbrewing and met fellow Rocklanders.
.
Dorothy had it right when she said, “there’s no place like home.”

Whole New Perspective

O Captain! my Captain! our beautiful trip ended too soon aboard the NYACKBOAT C H A R T E R this evening. Hosted by owner, Doug Foster and Captain Kevin, our autumn Hudson River sail up river past the majestic cliffs of Hook Mt was just what the doctor ordered. The stress of the day melted away as we were welcomed dockside at the revitalized Nyack Municipal Marina and then ferried aboard the 54 foot Al Vento.

Our group was eclectic, conversational and interesting. Imagine going sailing with folks you don’t know and leaving with cell numbers and emails.  The setting, sailing and sense of awe that only nature can provide made us wondering why we hadn’t picked up the phone before this and taken advantage of one of Nyack’s great treasures.

We live on the Hudson in Nyack and literally got a look back at our home, Eagle’s Barn gaining a whole new perspective on the greatest of Nyack.

For a day on the Hudson or for a special event or for a corporate retreat, don’t hesitate to call 845 535 1675 or go to www. NyackBoatCharter.com you’ll be very happy you did.

Welcoming, Nautical Vibe

The pretty sailboat… the expertise of the crew♡…  This sail so close to home… was such a feeling of being away on vacation!

It was peaceful, elegant and very professional.

Thank you NBC for such a beautiful way to spend an afternoon on the water.

Your welcoming, nautical vibe will bring us back in the spring!

Amazing Experience

We went out on a private charter with family and friends. Doug was extremely responsive and made sure everything was taken care of before the trip. Everyone enjoyed the sunset tour. Our teenagers loved the tubing.

Captain Kevin and first mate were very nice and helpful.

It was an amazing experience.

Memorable 60th Birthday

I booked the Al Vento for a private sunset cruise in celebration of my wife’s 60th birthday. An absolutely perfect evening with our children and grandson, and she was absolutely thrilled. The boat is very well appointed, although we never really left the deck!

Doug was terrific in organizing our event, and Rob and Dave not only sailed the boat expertly, but taught us a few things. They also picked up, served and cleaned up after our food and drink. Perfect weather and a beautiful sunset didn’t hurt!

Best purchase of the summer

The afternoon sail was the best purchase of the summer! Doug’s communication prior to the trip was extremely helpful in terms of weather and planning. We got lucky with a gorgeous day.

The 55ft sailboat was so beautiful and Captain Dave was more than willing to teach everyone all about it, including allowing us to steer!

Complimentary beer and wine and snack (cheese, crackers, hummus) made it a truly amazing experience. Fun mix of tourists and locals to keep conversation fresh.

We look forward to an overnight trip in the near future!

Caribbean North of NYC

Did you think it possible to get to the Caribbean a mere 15 miles North of the GWB?

For two glorious hours, Nyack Boat Charter offered us a stress-free, sweetly guided sail, literally right in our backyard. Booking and communication were as breezy as the outing. Kevin and Owen were so competent and super gracious.

I am already planning a Fall excursion. And a Spring. And a Summer. A reminder that we live next to one of the most beautiful waterways in the world.

Wonderful Way to Spend the Sunset

This is the best thing to do in Nyack!

Book the sunset sail (2-hours, great value!) and sip wine while taking in the views. They offer local wines and beer but also allow you to bring your own (we brought some Champagne).

It’s so relaxing, and the team is so hospitable.

Shout out to Doug and Kevin for making our sail extra-awesome!

Relaxing Birthday

My family and I chartered Al Vento for a half day on the Hudson to celebrate multiple birthdays. Being that this was the first time we have ever chartered a boat we weren’t sure what to expect, but Doug and the Captain and his first mate were absolutely amazing. Doug answered all my questions promptly and was super easy to deal with prior to the sail day. Captain Kevin and his first mate were very courteous and friendly once we boarded the sailboat.

The waters were calm so the trip up the Hudson was extremely relaxing and on the way back we were able to put up the sails, which was beautiful. Everything we needed was down below and the service while aboard was top notch.

I will definitely charter with them again.

High Standards

Just back from an incredible 4 hr cruise for a corporate team building event.  To say it exceeded our expectations is an understatement.  The boat is great, the crew could not have been more knowledgeable and genuinely nice.

Really recommend their boat charter and plan on using them again.

It’s obvious their high standards are driving a lot of repeat customers.

Tubing and Swimming by the Hook

We went out on a two hour boat ride on Al Vento with Kevin as our captain. To say it was amazing would be a total understatement.

I live three blocks away and was totally unaware of the service that Nyack Boat Charter offers. We took the boat up by hook mountain and Kevin took the two teenage girls out on tube rides.

We were so impressed with how attentive he was to their needs, safety, and making sure they had a good time. He communicated well and obviously loves what he does. The weather and water was perfect and he also stopped to let us jump in for a swim. I have no complaints and definitely will be returning.

What a perfect day it was and I can’t imagine someone better to guide us on the way.

Don’t Miss This !

My wife and I have lived in Nyack for 32 years – but haven’t been in touch with the river (other than driving across it on the bridge) for years. We had family in from Michigan & Texas and one of our guests had a last minute thought to try to do a “river cruise”.

Really not alot of options – and then we found Nyack Boat Charter online. Quickly booked, nice evening, great sail on the beautiful 54′ Al Vento.  Our sailor son, who now lives in Berlin, was very jealous to get the photos by text message.

We will be going out again – hopefully often – now that we know that this great opportunity is at our doorstep.

Memorial Day on the water

Sailed my whole life but was missing it so booked an afternoon cruise for myself and two friends. The Al Vento is truly a stunning boat and the whole process couldn’t have been easier. Doug was prompt in returning my call and letting me know that they had added a public sail on a day they normally wouldn’t have had one. Kevin was a wonderful captain and is so comfortable on the boat and water that he puts everyone at ease. We could’ve used a little more wind but it was still an amazing day! Will definitely be coming back.

Perfect Sail on a perfect day!

I booked an afternoon sail for my husband’s birthday with our kids and 8 of our closest friends- it was a perfect day! The Al Vento was beautiful and Captain Kevin and First Mate Owen were very kind and knowledgeable. The sail was smooth and the weather was perfect-it was just such a great time. The entire charter experience was positive- Doug was very accommodating and was even able to change the day of my sail based on the weather and his availability. They are really great people to do business with and it was such a great way to enjoy our local Hudson River! My husband was really happy with his birthday! We will definitely sail again!!

The Trance of the River

Last fall my wife Ronna and I had the amazing opportunity to sail with the Nyack Boat Charter. We were joined by friends that we already knew and friends that we were able to meet that evening.

We ventured out onto the Hudson River to experience one of the highlights of our late Summer. As we explored the new bridge, houses along the shores of our majestic Hudson River we fell into what I call the trance of the river.

I had not been on the Hudson for over 30 years and the incredible views of Nyack from the river were magnificent. The sunset was one of the highlights of the sail.

We were treated with great wine, great food and great company. Thank you Doug for the chance to enjoy this amazing evening.

Not one of us wanted to return to reality…

I highly recommend an evening on the Hudson with the Nyack Boat Charter.

Birthday Cruise

I took my boyfriend on the sunset cruise for his birthday. I was really happy to find they were still cruising on Nov 3rd!! It turned out to be a beautiful day as I was concerned it would be too chilly. Captain Kevin was AWESOME! I’m looking forward to the next time. AND THERE WILL BE A NEXT TIME!!!

Al Vento Afternoon

We booked an afternoon sail for our anniversary and were so thrilled with our experience. As Nyack residents it was a wonderful way to see our village and the river from a completely new perspective. A top notch experience. Don’t miss this unique way to experience Nyack and the Hudson River!
