As the first and ONLY 100% female owned charter company in the area, I invite you to see why we are the most booked. My goal has been to change the subpar standard of what has been available, elevating the nautical experience. It is my pleasure to host you for your special events.
Yacht level cleanliness, the newest and nicest vessels. Hands on customer service makes us the premier charter choice. I am there to meet all my guests; we do not just hand you off once you book. Your experience matters. Unlike many bait and switch listings, we are located in Manhattan, our photos are recent of the actual vessels, you will not show up to find dirty, beat up, falsely marketed ugly boats. I am there with you every step of the way.

WE ARE USCG DOCUMENTED VESSELS CARRYING THE APPROPRIATE INSURANCE FOR VOYAGE AND DEMISE CHARTERS. WE CARRY ALL USCG REQUIRED SAFETY EQUIPMENT. OUR VESSELS ARE ONLY CAPTAINED BY USCG MASTER MERCHANT MARINERS WHO MEET ELEVATED STANDARDS.
We are a family and corporate friendly company and encourage children to be a part of the nautical experience. We always have surprises for the kids. We can customize charters with photography, banner, flowers- you name it.
6 passengers or less, the captain is included. All charters must have a USCG licensed crew, which averages $50 an hour in the area, in addition to the above rates for groups over 6. This is very easy to do.
The Manhattan Mermaid is a beautiful new, fun, boat suited for cruising up the Hudson River and taking in the amazing views of NYC.

We provide water and ice in our cooler. You can bring drinks if you like and simple hand held snacks. The Manhattan Mermaid is not configured for meals, lacking a galley and dining spaces. We have our larger luxury Cruisers Yacht, also in Manhattan, should you require more of a full-service vessel.
