Day Sail
Your choice: actively participate in the navigation of the river or sit back and let the majesty of the river, sky, wind and the boat thrill you as we explore the area of Port Ewen Bay and Esopus Meadows. The crew will gladly share information on the geography and history of the area.

Sunset Cruise
Luxuriate in the peace of nature as you unwind and slow down. Savor the beauty surrounding you and gain an appreciation of the region completely different from what you get on land. You will experience our environment from a unique perspective – at water level, as twilight and sunset grace our surroundings. It’s a perfect prelude to a leisurely dinner at a dockside restaurant, or maybe just a good night’s sleep.

Celestial Sailings
Celestial charters provide an introduction to the art and practice of navigating on the water using the heavenly bodies. And of course we will be sailing as well. Let’s call it the best of two worlds. We offer two options – nighttime and daytime excursions.

Ophira Sailing is happy to help you celebrate a special occasion aboard Gander. We cater to our passenger’s every need and strive to provide a memorable experience for all. Whether it’s adventure you are looking for with hands on excitement, or a peaceful sail to feed your soul.
