Circle Line: Bear Mountain Full-Day Cruise
Escape NYC and take a leisurely cruise up the Hudson River to historic Bear Mountain. You'll enjoy a 2.5-hour cruise each way, and have three hours to enjoy Bear Mountain's natural beauty and attractions.
- Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
- Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
- Family friendly
On your cruise to Bear Mountain you'll sail past the Palisades, Grant's Tomb, the George Washington Bridge and the Cloisters before cruising up the Hudson River. This trip is especially gorgeous in the fall, when the trees lining the river put on a spectacular display of russet and gold. Plus, every Saturday in October is Oktoberfest in Bear Mountain, with dancing, music and food.
Bear Mountain is 45 miles (72 kilometers) north of New York City, in the Hudson Highlands. Highlights you can explore during your two-hour visit include Trailside Museums and Zoo, Iona Island Estuarine Reserve and Bird Refuge, Perkins Tower, the merry-go-round and pavilion.
Pre-order a picnic lunch and enjoy a great day on the water! Beverages, wine, beer, cocktails, sandwiches, hotdogs, and snack foods are available for purchase on board.

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 $$$$.
