Hudson Cruise to bring in the New Year

Really good narrator, and it wasn't pre-recorded. (He had co-authored a book about the River.) They use a double-decker boat so view is better (if you go to second level, which has a sundeck area).

My husband and I came from Montreal to celebrate New Year’s Eve on the Hudson Cruise. We believe that it was money well spent. We had a fabulous time and we danced and drank to our hearts content. A simple buffet was served, but we didn’t eat because we had supper beforehand. The music was great and not too loud.... More

This cruise goes every Saturday and Sunday, in the summer. We had done the cruise out of Kingston earlier in the week, so some of the history was the same. This boat did not go as far and went slow, but we got to see quite a few birds, including bald eagles. It was much harder to understand the speaker,... More

I first contacted this cruise company online, via the email address, to ask a few questions. This was NOT a good experience, it was like pulling teeth to get a response...and when I did get a response, it wasn't accurate information. For example...we chartered the Little Spirit, it holds a max of 17 (15 guests, 2 crew). The person who... More

Important Disclosure: We never got on this boat--though we arrived excited about the prospect of an hour and a half cruise to see local mountains and perhaps wildlife. We'd found out about this cruise in our regional Entertainment Book (you know, those thick books full of buy-one get-one coupons). My husband had phoned the boat company the week before to... More

The trip started at 7:30AM at Hudson and went to 4 lighthouses (Hudson, Saugerties, Rondout and Esopus Meadows). The trip included a light breakfast and a nice lunch (chicken, Pasta, Meatballs, salad wraps etc). We were able to go into all 4 lighthouses and climb outside at the top. Each light had people to give the history of the lighthouse.... More

I just took a trip on the Spirit of Hudson a 65' paddle wheel boat with family and friends over Memorial Day weekend. I couldn’t have asked for a better time, it offered something for everyone that was with us. The crew on board was super friendly and Captain Guy was awesome! I would highly recommend that you take this... More
