Imagine enjoying a relaxing boat cruise with the wind in your hair and views of the majestic Hudson River all around—this is exactly what the Pride of the Hudson boat can offer when you take a Hudson River adventure. The Pride of the Hudsonhas actually been recognized in years past as “best cruise” by Hudson Valley Magazine many times during the 22 years this company has been in business.
The cruises go rain or shine so you can enjoy the fresh air on the spacious, open sun deck or choose to relax in the main salon that is climate controlled to be as comfortable as possible. It also has huge wrap-around windows so you will not miss out on any of the gorgeous sights if you are inside. The tour is narrated to ensure that you don’t miss any of the beautiful views or historical sights along the way. There is also a slide show running on a TV in the main salon. Together with the narration, this is a fantastic way to see and hear about all the secrets and treasures that these knowledgeable seamen have learned throughout years. The main level has a cash bar that provides beverages and light snacks.
The sightseeing cruises operate from May-October and depart from the Newburgh Landing. Along the way you will pass many sites such as Pollepel Island—on which are the ruins of the Bannerman Castle, Washington’s Headquarters, Mt. Beacon, The Catskill Water Aqueduct Storm King Mountain, Breakneck Mountain, World’s End, Cold Spring, and West Point.Hudson River Adventures also offers private charters, sunset cruises and happy hour cruises.
