Enjoy a fall foliage cruise aboard Yacht Kingston, a cozy, elegant, 1920s-style yacht with an observation cabin and open bow. See the grand foliage of the Palisade Cliffs on the Hudson River (nature permitting). Relax in the salon of the boat's heated and enclosed observatory with wrap around windows, or while catching the breeze on the open bow. Grab a hot beverage from the bar and gaze at New York's most dramatic natural wonders and colorful foliage as the seasons change. Light commentary will be provided as the boat cruises north along the Hudson River.

Key points:
- Seating available in covered and heated salon with large windows. *Please note that although the boat is heated, it is also drafty and we advise you to bring hats & gloves.
- A complimentary beverage is included from the bar. Additional drinks available for purchase by credit card only.
- Guests are encouraged to bring a lunch.
