NY Waterway's "Shades of Autumn" cruises celebrate the arrival of the fall season with fun and enjoyment for cruise goers of all ages. The non-stop Shades of Autumn is offered as a two-hour and a four hour tour, offering views of the exquisite Fall foliage along the Hudson River that has inspired writers and artists for over 200 years. While passengers enjoy spectacular views of one of the nation's most scenic foliage routes, an experienced tour guide will point out historical sites along the route and share local folklore about one of the nation's most picturesque regions.

Passengers who wish to breathe in the brisk Fall air are welcomed to ride top side -- while those who wish to enjoy the views from indoors can cruise in style on the ferry's lower level. PLEASE DRESS IN WEATHER APPROPRIATE CLOTHING!

Available for purchase: hot cider, coffee, tea, soft drinks, cocktails, donuts, sandwiches and wraps. No outside food permitted.
