Boat, crew, guides and lighthouses were amazing. Food was great too. I even saw my first Bald Eagle on the cruise!

Our trip couldn't have been better. Weather was beautiful. Crew and Captain were extremely accommodating. Food was very nice. Toured two lighthouses where the docents were very knowledgeable and helpful. Climbing up onto the roof was an adventure! The views were great. we'd take this trip again.

We sort of stumbled upon this boat cruise since the Hudson Chamber of Commerce told us all boat tours were closed during the week (!) We were watching the beautiful sunset from the boat launch in Hudson and saw that a boat was leaving the dock. Noted the name and website of the company and made reservations that evening online...

Had an enjoyable afternoon cruise along the Hudson with a friendly crew. The captain had a wealth of knowledge on the history and wildlife in the area.

It was amazing how awful the booking experience was. The cruise is not worth the trouble it takes to make the booking at all. The captain was talking and some other guy on the boy was talking simultaneously. There weren't enough seats on the upper deck. Very poor overall.

I very much enjoyed my afternoon cruise on the Hudson. The captain gave a very nice audio description pointing out all of the nearby landmarks. Being able to get up close to the Hudson Athens lighthouse was a particular treat. An extra bonus is how close the dock is to the Hudson train station, which makes it very convenient for... More

Our captain was extremely knowledgeable about local history, sharing interesting stories personal anecdotes to make the experience thoroughly enjoyable. The cruise is the perfect length of time to be on the water.
