Hi my name is Ian. I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years and love to share my joy of sailing and nature with guests. I'm the owner of Enchantress, a beautiful 1994 Catalina 34 sailboat. I have a USCG (United States Coast Guard) Master sailing license, I'm certified in CPR, and have spent years living and sailing around the Atlantic East Coast. I once solo sailed the Bahamas for a Winter and had friends visit me along the way. I look forward to meeting you and going out for a sail around NY Harbor!

It was a great experience, enjoying the view of New York, and nice sea breeze. Ian is a great host, and awesome company too. He also shared great interesting stories from his sailing adventures, and was very friendly all along. Highly recommended.

We. Had. A. BLAST! We booked Ian as part of a day trip to Brooklyn to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was definetly the highlight of our trip! We brought my two daughters, a teen and a tween and even they were impressed! Ian was the right touch of professional, personalable, and very knowledgeable. It also helps that he was as everyone one in the reviews has mentioned... super chill. I would also add that he's super dope! The experience was extraordinary. The views were spectacular and I would highly recommend this as a "must do" experience if you are looking for something different and its at a reasonable price. This is definitely something we look forward to doing again and SOON! -Teresa J.

An absolute Must Do, in NYC! We thoroughly enjoyed our sail with Ian & would highly recommend. There’s space to social distance (a maximum of 6 guests on the boat) & Ian reinforces mask wearing when around others. Great host, great boat & amazing views watching the sun go down over Manhattan. A perfect NYC evening ♥️

Highly recommend! This is a very relaxing 2.5 hours. Ian is a great host and interacted with us in a gracious but not intrusive way. It's a great way to see the NYC skyline and other sights as well. We already are thinking about who we might bring with us next time!

Brooklyn Sail was such an amazing experience. I booked this experience for my boyfriends 27th birthday. We are native New Yorkers but seeing our city in this way was so unique and beautiful. Ian was very accommodating, easy to communicate with and made the experience so fun! We were able to book a private sail which was a plus. We will definitely be coming back a couple of times during the summer. Thanks Ian!
