We enjoyed seeing the beautiful fall foliage along the Hudson River this time of year. It was also interesting to learn the history.

We took the two-hour cruise down the Hudson River from Kingston, NY to Hyde Park. The weather was windy and the leaf-peeping was just past peak, but we had a wonderful boat ride.

The crew was friendly and the ride was smooth. The narration was good but a little hard to hear when the motor was on. I would take another ride!

Very nice boat, the staff was friendly, the show was great and the food was good. Even though you could purchase drinks from the bar I felt water or soft drink could have been included with the meal. Would do this again!

Last Thursday our Leisure Club took advantage of the Indian Summer Weather and enjoyed cruising the Hudson River on the Rip Van Winkle. The ship held 161 passengers that day without overcrowding. There were plenty of chairs for all and much to see. Our cruise headed south from Kingston and traveled down the river as far as the Vanderbilt Mansion... More
