We had so much fun! The views were beautiful, the alcohol was flowing (you might even call this a "booze cruise") and the festival at Bear Mountain was great! Would do this again in a heartbeat.Reviewed by: Shannon M, October 2012
The trip was awesome. Though it wasn't quite sunny. It was also a pleasure taking part in the 'Oct Fest'. I liked the place and the peoples. Also appreciate Viator for how the organize the entire trip.Reviewed by: Fatedad E, October 2012

Excellent trip. One warning, be on the ship by time crew says. Saw a person left behind. It was sad, but it was their own fault. They were told many times as people were leaving the ship.
Due to the excellent weather, we had a great time at Bear Mountain.
We did not care much for the October Fest, so we enjoyed ourselves with the beautiful nature on site.
The three hours on Bear Mountain were more than enough.
I can imagine that the 2,5 hours it takes the boat to get there, can be quite boring, but we had a great time taking pictures in the front of the boat.
Be sure to bring something to eat, because the prices on the boat are expensive.
A trip worth taking. The crew and boat were amazing, friendly and informative. Although we were unable to dock at Bear Mountain due to high tides covering the jetty, this was off set by the Captain sailing further up river . This enabled us to see West Point Officers Academy and other stunning scenery. The view on the return journey as you approach NY is breath taking as the outline of NY on the skyline is framed by the George Washington bridge. A fond memory of our stay in NY.Reviewed by: Ian S W, October 2011
We had a wonderful day at Bear Mountain the boat trip over and back was great, without this site we would not have known about Bear Mountain. Coffee on board was good not expensive staff very good. New to computers so we are learning to look and find places that we would like to see we found this site and pleased that we did. We are now back in Australia and have enjoyed our trip to the USA/Canada Thank you for your site.Reviewed by: Leon G, October 2010
Excellent value! It was a lovely trip there and when we arrived there was theOktoberfest going on so that was an extra for us! Then a very relaxing trip back and it gave us time to recharge our batteries. Tour guide on boat excellentReviewed by: Christine D, October 2010
