Wonderful view of NYC, the staff was very professional. I highly recommen this tour.
Weather was beautiful, staff vey helpful a fabulous day and worth the money .
This was a fun trip - the weather was good and the Oktoberfest was full of good food and beer. The vendors were selling nice items - worth the time and $$$$.
We enjoyed our trip to Bear Mountain. Captain was great -he announced points of interest as we sailed up the Hudson. Climbing the mountain was fun-enjoyed the zoo.Scenery was awesome-took lots of great pictures
October fest was in full swing-lots of vendors and food.
We will take this trip again in the summer.
It was Awsome!!!! The scenery was just stunning!!! Spectacar views going and coming. Bear Mountain is such a beautiful place. I took so many memrobable pictures. I had such a good time that I recommend to a friend at work.
We had so much fun! The views were beautiful, the alcohol was flowing (you might even call this a "booze cruise") and the festival at Bear Mountain was great! Would do this again in a heartbeat.
Great trip only would like to have known about the climb up tp Bear Mtn inn.
The trip was awesome. Though it wasn't quite sunny. It was also a pleasure taking part in the 'Oct Fest'. I liked the place and the peoples. Also appreciate Viator for how the organize the entire trip.
Excellent trip. One warning, be on the ship by time crew says. Saw a person left behind. It was sad, but it was their own fault. They were told many times as people were leaving the ship.
Due to the excellent weather, we had a great time at Bear Mountain.
We did not care much for the October Fest, so we enjoyed ourselves with the beautiful nature on site.
The three hours on Bear Mountain were more than enough.
I can imagine that the 2,5 hours it takes the boat to get there, can be quite boring, but we had a great time taking pictures in the front of the boat.
Be sure to bring something to eat, because the prices on the boat are expensive.
A trip worth taking. The crew and boat were amazing, friendly and informative. Although we were unable to dock at Bear Mountain due to high tides covering the jetty, this was off set by the Captain sailing further up river . This enabled us to see West Point Officers Academy and other stunning scenery. The view on the return journey as you approach NY is breath taking as the outline of NY on the skyline is framed by the George Washington bridge. A fond memory of our stay in NY.
We had a wonderful day at Bear Mountain the boat trip over and back was great, without this site we would not have known about Bear Mountain. Coffee on board was good not expensive staff very good. New to computers so we are learning to look and find places that we would like to see we found this site and pleased that we did. We are now back in Australia and have enjoyed our trip to the USA/Canada Thank you for your site.
A very pleasant boat trip, providing great views of the Hudson River valley, plus 3 hours to enjoy a relaxing and picturesque hike around Bear Mountain. Highly Recommended!
Excellent value! It was a lovely trip there and when we arrived there was theOktoberfest going on so that was an extra for us! Then a very relaxing trip back and it gave us time to recharge our batteries. Tour guide on boat excellent
We missed the peak colors being early by maybe a week or so, and it rained almost all day. We still have a terrific time and it did stop raining long enough to vist the mountain for 90 minuetes or so. I would definetly find time for this trip again next year, and hope for better weather.
It was awesome day- trip, the boat was nice, the scenery was really beautiful. Recommend to everybody! We took a lot of pictures and saw Bear Mountains train. Great time on this wonderfull trip!
We had a wonderful time and it was perfect! We will do it again next year!
A good chance to recreate oneself after a whole week in New York City! The Bear Mountains are a really nice place.
Last time I took this trip was 31 years ago for my senior trip, and at that age you don't realize the history and the beautiful scenery that the Hudson River has. It was a rainy day, but our captain made the best of it; we were told the history of some things that were important, and we had music plus his jokes in between had us laughing. We could not get off at our destination, but we went further up the Hudson, and I personally was happy I got to see West Point and a few more historic places. Can't wait to do it again. I was still able to capture some beautiful pictures even thought it was rainy and foggy.
I would recommend everyone this trip but probably by the end the October when you can really see the foliage change. There was also a plus in my trip which was the ocktoberfest at the park "I enjoyed it like crazy". Aboard everybody was so nice and helpful, especially the tour guide was a great help! One thing do not take too many things with you so you can fully enjoy this experience without carrying too many things. The cruise also was brand new just 2 weeks old which made "THE difference".
A great day out despite the weather turning foul on the return. The Hudson is a magnificent waterway for cruising and Bear Mountain is a great destination. The Oktoberfest Festival at Bear Mountain was a lovely feature, but the walk around Hessian Lake with the fall colors at their height was truly a highlight. Highly recommended.
