My husband and I took our son and his 3 elementary, middle school children on the Oct. 1 cruise. The day was cool and overcast but we were lucky to see numerous eagles in the trees lining the river and we enjoyed the guide who was very interesting and knowledgeable. The kids liked the top deck and the snack bar.... More

We selected a private charter with the Dutch Apple Cruise for our company outing. It was a very relaxing trip. The ship was very clean and service was excellent. Our lunch was catered by Anton's and the food was also very good. We had perfect weather for a mid-September day and the views were beautiful on the Hudson River. It... More

Interesting & relaxing trip - calm boat ride, interesting historical facts, and presented the chance to see several bald eagles flying above the river. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

We didn't get to experience this cruise as it wasn't running on the day we arrived (Thursday) despite it being advertised on the web site and on the noticeboard outside the booking office. When I rang them they said it was running the next day - not a lot of use to us as we were leaving for Montauk the... More

We apologize for the inconvenience. Our summer schedule (where we cruise Wednesday through Sunday at 1p) ends after Labor Day and then our Fall schedule begins. The sign must have not been taken down in time (it has not been up for two weeks now). When did you visit us? Our website does not have any cruises listed for Thursday's... More

I organized a group of twenty to go on this cruise and everyone loved it! It helped that the weather was beautiful, but everything else was so nice too. The staff were genuinely warm and friendly and the guide was terrific. Many of us are longtime residents of the area and we learned so much. We were also very pleasantly... More

As the holiday season had finished, there were only a handful of us on this cruise, which made it very personal. Pat, the tour guide, clearly knew her stuff and was not only informative about what we were seeing but also was able to answer numerous questions about the history of Albany. I would fully recommend the cruise, but do... More

It was my grandson's first cruise. He saw an eagle fishing and the captain let him steer the boat. Also, the snack staff were nice to him. I found the tour guide to be knowledgeable and friendly. We had a most excellent adventure
