Captain David of Tribeca Sailing

Your Hosts and Our Captains

Captain David learned how to sail at the age of 16 on the south shore of Long Island. David started Tribeca Sailing in 2013 to share his passion for sailing with the world. He fills his sails with facts about New York City, stories about personal experiences, and expert sailing techniques. In short, Captain David wants you to enjoy your boat tour and sail. He is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Master.

Captain Clark joined Tribeca Sailing’s team this year and has quickly become a valued member.  Captain Clark has an extensive sail training record and a history as a video producer. He has an extreme passion for sailing and loves to share that passion with our guests. He is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Master.

With a sailing resume too long to post, it is fair to say, “What hasn’t Captain Matt done!”.  From offshore experience to captaining large schooners, he has done it all. We are proud to have Captain Matt on the Tribeca Sailing’s team. He could work anywhere but loves sailing our boat Tara where he really gets to shine. He is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Master.

Captain Dave, a native New Yorker, was extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable in regard to our magnificent “once in a lifetime” New York harbor cruise. In his easy-going manner he shared with us the history of this tremendous New York waterway and the city. He and his mate, his teakwood trimmed sailboat Tara, gave us a wonderful relaxing cruise and views of New York we will never forget!

WOW! I can't thank Captain Dave & Levi enough for their help in making our engagement an experience we'll never forget! A beautiful boat, incredible views, and top-notch service! Also, Cpt Dave took some wonderful photos for us while popping the question! 2 hours on the water with close up views of Lady Liberty and the iconic FiDi skyline were totally worth it. We felt very safe - my fiancee gets seasick from time to time, but was totally unaffected by it on this boat. We definitely want to go back with a small group of friends to share the experience again! If you're a local New Yorker, this is an amazing way to see your city in a way you never have before. Don't overthink it - Tribeca Sailing is the way to go!

Perfect Staycation During COVID We had an amazing 2+ hour private sail on Tara with Captain Dave. Weather was gorgeous and we had such a great time. It is the perfect way to see NYC and spend time on the water as a staycation during COVID. Captain Dave was responsive and personalized our sailing time to our needs. We can't wait to sail on the Tara again . . .

Our group had a phenomenal experience with Tribeca Sailing - planning the reservation and directions to the marina were seamless with David’s help, making the sunset charter a memorable experience. Having this charter for our group of six made the experience intimidate, personable, and covid-conscious. After this sailing we plan to rebook, for family and friends visiting New York. Thank you again, this was a great way to celebrate a birthday!

Captain David is amazing! I booked the Tara for my boyfriend's birthday, and it was such a delight! It was just us two and Captain David and he made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole ride. He was so much fun to talk to and get to know, and he allowed us to see NYC in such a great way. There is no better way to see the skyline!! Thank you so much for an amazing birthday weekend.

Such a great way to safely celebrate with friends! Captain Dave was kind and made everyone on board feel safe and welcome. Even though the weather wasn't perfectly clear or warm (there was even a light mist at some points), we had an incredible time taking in the views of the city. We comfortably sat at the bow of the ship to chat and enjoy music, drinks, and snacks during our nighttime sail. We brought extra layers and blankets, which was a smart move. Would definitely recommend and would love to do again!

We had an amazing sailing experience! Could not have asked for better weather to enjoy a lovely evening on the Hudson. David was a wonderful captain and showed us incredible views of the Statue of Liberty and city at sunset. We could not have asked for a better way to celebrate our engagement than this!
