Fling Yourself Into Spring!!

Take a 30-mile cruise up the mighty Hudson River to 800 foot-tall Hook Mountain, across from the famed Sing Sing Prison, while enjoying vernal sights and a spring-themed experience, including food specials, special beers (available for purchase) and live music, before returning to Pier 83

Our huge, outdoor decks are perfect for getting some spring sun, fresh air and 360-degree views.

Cruise north under two of the most impressive bridges in New York State, the grand George Washington Bridge and the recently completed Mario Cuomo Bridge, aka Tappan Zee bridge. You'll pass by the Little Red Lighthouse, the Cloisters, the incredible Hudson River Palisades, Lyndhurst Mansion, the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse, and finally, Hook Mountain, which rises to nearly 800 feet straight up from the Hudson River with sheer cliffs, surrounded by ravens, hawks, ospreys and the occasional Bald Eagle.

While on your journey, you'll learn about all of these sights and more from one of our NY Historical Society approved tour guides. And you'll also enjoy the Americana and country rock of Divining Rod, who will play a heady mix of soulful originals and eclectic covers during their 5-week residency on this historic and fun-filled cruise.
