Experience the Brilliant Fall Colors on the Hudson River

Cruising the Hudson River is a Fall Bucket List Item!

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ― Lauren DeStefano

There is nothing quite like autumn in New York, and there may be no better place to enjoy fall bursting with all of its colors than on a sightseeing cruise on the Hudson River. Our daily sightseeing cruises at 2:30 pm are the perfect venue to take in all the majestic beauty that bursts to life each fall along the pristine and historic shoreline of the Hudson.

We’re going to be perfectly honest—something magical happens every fall as the leaves turn and the lower angle of the sun on the water turns our daily cruise into a kaleidoscope of the prettiest fall colors you can imagine. The luminescent reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and greens mix with the blues of both the water and the sky to provide a breathtaking afternoon of beautiful colors.

Our afternoon cruise is perfect for a school field trip, a corporate outing, any celebration, or just a great way for a group of friends to get together and enjoy a spectacular fall afternoon. Our sightseeing cruises travel up and down the Hudson River, taking in numerous historical sights and landmarks along the way.

If you want to take in all the pageantry of the fall colors in the evening, Hudson River Cruises Sunset Cruises allows you to do that while also having a great time enjoying music. On Friday, October 12, we’re offering a “Cigar Cruise” for all of you aficionados who know that there’s nothing quite like a good cigar outside in the crisp weather that fall brings.

Everyone loves fall. There’s just something about the fresh air that’s brought in by the dip from summer’s high temperatures that makes being outside exhilarating and fun. There’s simply no better way to enjoy being outside in the fall than on a cruise on the Hudson River. Grab your family, friends, co-workers and make the most out of a fall afternoon. We promise you it’s a day you’ll never forget!
