Had a wonderful sail on the beautiful sailboat Wind Dance with Captain Jeff and first mate Angela on the amazing Hudson River! Jeff and Angela are amazing hosts and make sailing look very easy!! ( it was for me I didn't lift a finger, except to raise my wine glass lol). Totally recommend this 3 hour adventure with these lovely people and their enjoyable guests.

What a joy today was! First time out on the Hudson in years, and Captain Jeff and Angela were wonderful. What a great way to get back on the river! They welcomed questions and happily answered a few we had about navigating the Hudson waters... They were wonderful. easy hosts to be with, and we felt totally at ease under their sails. Would I do it again? Over and over again! I mean, what could be better? It was a gorgeous day and I'm so grateful we watched the sun go down together on that big beautiful river!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Outstanding day out on the water with Captain Jeff and Skipper Angela on Sunday, Sept 17. Not only are they skilled sailors, they're funny too. And there's nothing like being on the Hudson! I've sailed the Atlantic, the Long Island Sound, the Great South Bay, the St. Lawrence, the FL Keys and the Pacific and yet, for me, being on the Hudson aboard Wind Dance possibly tops them all. I'm in a New State of Mind I suppose. Thanks Jeff and Angela!

Had an absolutely fabulous time sailing with you guys back in October 2017. Exhilarating and relaxing in equal measures. Your hospitality was spot on and we would love to sail the Hudson again with you one day. Thanks for a wonderful time on the water.

My family and I had a wonderful time sailing on the Hudson with the lovely people of Ophira Sailing. The entire crew was rather personable while showing great professionalism and seamanship. The particular day we went out was a bit rougher than normal so the crew adjusted the plan and stayed in calmer waters in response to a passengers request. Anyone looking for a nice day on the water with really good people, don't hesitate to contact Ophira Sailing, you won't be disappointed!
