Great margarita, smooth ride in sunshine, clean and informative. Crew was nice, boat was clean, tour was just right length. Nothing better than top deck rear sunshine and wind for an afternoon!

We took visiting relatives on the Dutch Apple and had a great time. Ms Van Alstyne was a friendly, interesting and informative tour guide. Having a snack bar was very helpful for scheduling our day. The boat was very clean and comfortable. It was a terrific experience.

Great idea to have a fundraiser on a boat sailing down the Hudson River. The fund raiser organizers provid the food, therefore can not comment on food, but the cost for a bottle of water was quite pricey. Not handicap accessible to the upper deck of the boat.

Went on the sightseeing cruise after going to Saratoga. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. The man narrating was personable and knowledgeable. Nice to see Albany from the water. Also saw several Eagles. Soft drinks and alcohol available.

This was my first trip to Albany. This cruise allowed me to experience the beauty of not only the downtown region of Albany, but the beautiful Hudson River itself. The cruise runs for about 2 hours, and is the best way to spend your time on a hot steamy day, or if you wish to relax after a long day... More
