Together, the waterways are home to 165 different species of fish.

Taking a boat ride along the coast or the Erie Canal is one of the best ways to experience New York, and you don’t have to own a boat to enjoy this fantastic state. All types of watercrafts are available to rent, from sailboats, yacht rentals, power boat hires, and pontoon boats to single-person kayaks and canoes.

Houseboats, canoes, inner tubes – you name it, you can find it in this beautiful state.

Westhampton offers a quiet and secluded atmosphere that caters to rest and relaxation at a manageable, two-hour train ride from Manhattan. If you choose to rent a seaside bungalow, an abundance of surf clubs, sailing schools, beaches, and seafood will keep you occupied for the duration of your stay. Water sports such as jet skiing, parasailing, wind surfing, surfing, and paddleboarding will break up your beach days while crabbing, fishing, and yachting are potential day-long retreats.

You can also witness New York City like never before as you watch the impressive Empire State Building and the charming landscape from a new perspective while taking a tour on the waterways. Although the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are chart-toppers in terms of tourist attractions, the Big Apple also has a number of other popular destinations that boaters love to explore.

    “Oh my God!”, those 3 words can summarize our trip with Johnny. It was so much fun, peaceful, and absolutely beautiful. Captain Johnny is a very nice, professional and knowledgeable Captain. He has such a naturally great vibe! I went on the trip with my husband and our two children, it was the perfect “Reset”. Captain Johnny made sure the kids were entertained, informed of any cool water sightings, provided fun facts, and kept safety a priority at the same time. I don’t usually write reviews but I felt like I needed to. It took me a week before I decided to book, I’m trying to help YOU make the right choice quicker than I did. GO sail away and have a beautiful day! You’re welcome :) Thank you Johnny, we look forward to taking another trip with you very soon!

    Our Captain Krista made our night absolutely unforgettable. She was truly amazing! I cannot thank Jessica- for prompt communication with all my questions. The boat was beautiful and cleanliness was impeccable. There were even blankets on the boat that we were able to use as a night cooled off. I recommend to everyone! Thank you Jessica and Krista xo
