This is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, cruising on the Hudson River. We went on Wednesday, July 27, 2014. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and the entire staff was pleasant and accommodating. The entrance fee of $17.95 is very reasonable for a 1 1/2 hour boat ride. While the sights of the run down Port... More

We have been wanting to cruise the Hudson for a while and were not disappointed. Our guide came out to talk with us on deck, with her microphone but we could all hear her quite well. She provided a running commentary not only on historic tidbits but pointed out everything from ocean going ships to eagles, both mature and immature.... More

I've been on the Dutch Apple several times. I love the peacefulness of cruising the river and looking at the scenic views and the homes on the river.

River traffic was fascinating (barges, freighters and dozens of tugboats)! Lady tour guide was really knowledgable and was great at pointing out eagles (saw 4 of them!) Highly recommend.!

We had my sister’s birthday with friends & family on the Dutch Apple Cruise yesterday and can’t say enough about how nice the cruise was. I have lived in the Albany area all my life but I learned things that I never knew about the area along the river from the narrator on the cruise. Seeing the wildlife along the... More

I went on a sightseeing cruise last December and felt in love with this experience. What an enjoyable trip! Fall leaves were beautiful and we got to see an eagle! Boat was very clean, I would definitely come back to do this again and recommend it to my friend.

My retirement party was held on this boat. It was a great time. We cruised for 3 hours. I would have preferred 3 more. Fun was had by all. We hired a DJ who played what was requested. Food was catered by Nicole's of Albany. They are the usual caterers. The food was out of this world. Everyone raved about... More

We timed our tour of the USS Slater and planned a cruise down the Hudson on Dutch Apple Cruises right next to the USS Slater (if you are in the area I highly recommend visiting both). There a clean restroom on the dock, as the USS Slater does not have one. The Dutch Apple has restrooms aboard and both the... More

This cruise today included a wonderful historical narration by 'Henry Hudson' about not only the Albany area, but the evolution of the various industries along the river and the changes which occurred over time, as we traveled south. It was very informative, especially as we cruised down the Hudson river to Castleton-on-Hudson, viewing many beautiful homes along the way. I... More

Two hour boat trip down the Hudson with very informative narration about the river,the city, history of the passing land and homes. We saw many birds including five eagles. Check out the unassuming food cart in front the boat. Food is permitted on the boat. We had a truly delicious burger and fried potato salad. snacks, hotdogs and a full... More
