My Mother & I really enjoyed the cruise. The boat was clean. The weather was beautiful. The scenery was phenomenal. The only negative was the boat ramp. It was extremely steep.

It was boring. There is not much to see except dirty water and railroad tracks. Maybe I'm spoiled because I live in the 1000 islands were we have pirate sTories, ship wrecks, sparkling clean water, castles and wildlife. It was a nice day a nice ride but just nothing interesting. PS stay away from the pricey bar drinks sucked.

I went with a group for a friend's party. We were all coming from out of town and therefore coordinating all parties was tough, especially because the weather was not great so cabs were full and slower. The rain did stop in time for the boat tour, and there was hot coffee and lovely wine on deck to warm us up! However, we almost missed it because they were very firm on the starting time. All in all, I recommend the experience, but make sure you are careful about your timing.

The crew was friendly and accommodating. The boat was clean and nicely decorated. There were two bridal parties aboard and since they were very enthusiastic, we chose to go up to the top deck, where there were tables and chairs available and a beautiful view of the Hudson River and the coastline. The Captain and Skipper were very friendly and spent time speaking with us about the cruise. Will definitely go again when it is not a rainy day!

meh...

I came with a group of friends. I'd say the weather certainly didn't help (it was a cloudy, rainy day - this is, of course, decidedly ideal for a beautiful day on the water), but the whole thing was kind of "meh." We were a large group (12 of us) coming in different cars, and two cars were about 3 minutes late, and the boat was basically leaving without most of us. So, we didn't get off to the greatest start. There weren't enough seats inside for everyone, so we ended up spending most of our time on the upper deck even though it wasn't nice weather. It was a bit slippery and grey and hard to hear the information about where we were... It was also a long ride....
