An invitation remembered. Received an invitation in the mail from a friend he was taking a group of people on a fall foliage cruise. Spectacular sites, Highly recommend this cruise!

Enjoyed the beautiful October day. Crew was wonderful. Cruise was very smooth so if you are prone to motion sickness you can actually be on the water without getting queasy.

Nice trip on a fall day to view the foliage from the water. Enjoyable ride from Herkimer to Lock 18 and back. Get to go up and down the lock. Crew was professional and courteous - and the narration was humorous. Drinks and snacks were very affordably priced (including beer / wine, etc...). Cute gift shop with regional goods to explore prior to boarding.
