The sightseeing ride on either Pride or the rival Paddle wheeler are fantastic. You go through the Hudson River Fiord to West Point. Views are jaw dropping. We go every year but I was 40 before I took it the first time after living in the area my whole life. Having taken similar outing in many parts of the world I do not think there is better bang for the buck anywhere and it is ridiculously convenient.

Expected a narrated cruise. The narration was pre-recorded and kept cutting out, so we observed "radio silence" for much of it. The lower, enclosed deck was incredibly hot (no a/c) and there were ants crawling on the windowsills and walls. Cruising south it was very hot, but once we turned around to head north we had the breeze and it was more pleasant. My party consisted of myself, my husband, and two kids (9 and 13) and cost over $80. I'm not sure it was worth that price, but it gave us something to do on a Thursday afternoon.

My family and I wanted to do something special and then go out to eat. We enjoy being outside, but it was difficult to mesh what the younger kids wanted to do (2-16) with what the adults wanted to do. We came across "Pride of the Hudson" and all agreed it looked like a fun trip. The boat ride was two hours long. It was narrated for the first half and then we enjoyed the scenery on the way back. The day was beautiful, so we sat outside on their top deck. The kids enjoyed snacks from the bar and my wife who has Celiac's Disease enjoyed a gluten free beer! We were impressed with the crew's knowledge of the sights along the Hudson. We didn't realize there was so much to see, so close to home and it was a great way to see it all. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to try something new and who likes to have the family all agree on something! It seemed like a good trip for any age. Well worth it. Oh, one more thing, there are plenty of restaurants along the waterfront, so we went out for an early dinner afterwords.

It was a nice tour and our out of town guests enjoyed a beautiful day on the boat. It gets a bit boring after a while but was well worth the half price ticketsof $10/each thru double take deals/coupon clipper.
