ONLY IN NYC
Set Sail On A Manhattan By Sail Cruise!

Spring has finally sprung! This means that soon enough you'll actually want to leave your house to and take part in all NYC has to offer on the wine and dine scene. Boats, patios, rooftops, anywhere and everywhere under the sun is fair game. Here at Joonbug.com, we know that the best way to soak up some sun and booze is by the water on one of Manhattan By Sail's three different specialty drink sails.

Beginning at the end of April, Manhattan By Sail will be commandeering New York's biggest sailing ship, Clipper City, as well as the Shearwater for its Craft Beer Tasting, Wine Tasting, and Champagne Brunch sails. Whatever your poison may be, drink savvy seafarers can embark on any and all of these three boozy, open-water adventures every Saturday and Sunday starting April 26th.
