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!

Delightful Sail

here’s no better way to enjoy the glorious Hudson River than sailing with Captain Kevin and first mate Brian. A tip top boat with a knowledgeable and gracious crew provide for a lovely sail. We were on a public charter of ten. There’s plenty of room above and spacious quarters below. Beverages and snacks are included. Highly recommend.

Great way to spend an afternoon, with our without wind

We’ve taken two cruises with Kevin, one without much wind, and one with perfect conditions.  Even when we were under motor, the cruise was great fun and we covered a lot of ground. But with wind, the trip was really amazing.

The boat is big enough that you don’t feel the choppy water – you just cut right through it.  Getting on and off of the boat is easy, even for those who aren’t used to it.

If you are looking for a great way to spend an afternoon, this is it!

A Beautiful way to see the Hudson River!

Got a chance to sail aboard Al Vento with my Husband on a public charter. What a great experience it was! Doug and Captain Kevin made us all feel welcome and comfortable. It was a great way to see the Hudson River close up. If you are looking for staycations in the Hudson Valley, this is a must!

Great time on Hudson while sipping Vino

I planned this surprise for my friend’s Birthday and was hoping for the best. It was way more than expected.

She was overjoyed, and had an amazing day! We had amazing views and met so many nice people.

Captain and Crew were friendly and professional. The Sailboat was large comfortable and clean. Cheese, Wine, Beer and other drinks for everyone.

The sail was amazing, we had a great time and will definitely do it again next year.

Perfect way to spend a late summer evening

Chartering the Al Vento is, without question, one of the most unique and memorable ways to celebrate a special occasion on the Hudson River.

We took family and friends on a sunset cruise for my husband’s birthday. Captains Doug, Rob and Kevin were knowledgeable and accommodating — even moving out our sail one day to ensure the seas were calm and the sunset spectacular. They made everything easy and carefree.

It was a perfect way to spend a late summer evening. We highly recommend and hope to be aboard again soon!

Drinks, delicious snacks and great company as we cruised along the Hudson.

I’d highly recommend Nyack Boat Charter to anyone.

You Need to Do This

Absolutely beautiful and magical. One of those experiences you can’t say you have lived plentifully without experiencing it. Imagine sailing on the majestic Hudson river, the sun setting, the view of the coastline, wine and cheese… perfect day. Definitely doing it again. Thanks Doug and Kevin! You make dreams real.

Special Treat for Company Outing

Our company took us on an afternoon sail up the Hudson and we all had an amazing time.  The owner, Doug made the entire process very easy for us to book and the captain and his mate were very knowledgeable and pleasant.

I highly recommend this as a special treat as a company outing but also great for a day trip with friends or family.
