This is a great way to see the City from the water, relax and enjoy the scenery while learning some history of the area. There are multiple decks to the ship, with both indoor and out door seating. They serve drinks and snacks for a fee. We enjoyed this very much and spotted many eagles in the trees along the... More

A great afternoon of cruising on the Hudson River. Saw all the attractions of the city of Albany from a different vantage point on the river. Learned some of the history of shipping on the Hudson. Our guide pointed out a bald eagle and a golden eagle, very nice. It was quite a warm day, on our cruise and there... More

A very relaxing and well done tour of the downtown waterfront, the entire working port, and some fine residential mansions south of the city. If you're lucky you'll catch an eagle (one flew by us, briefly) or more likely cormorants. Tour takes 90 minutes out and back. Small but ship-shape tour boat, with an excellent crew including a well informed... More

We had a delightful "voyage" and the guide/narrator added so much colorful context to every curve in the river and shore line.

Decided to take SO for his birthday, on a hot Saturday afternoon, Memorial Day weekend. Beautiful breeze on the water. Right off 787, easy to get too, simple booking, friendly staff, and good crowd. AAA, SR and/or Child fare offered. Boat is not terribly big, I'm not sure if they were at capacity but a lot of people were standing... More
