Step aboard 1920s-style yacht Manhattan II and cruise north on the Hudson River in style! While on this 2-hour cruise, guests can admire the Palisades of the Hudson River through the windows and skylights of the boat's heated and enclosed observatory, or while catching the breeze on the open bow. Snap some photos of New York's most dramatic natural wonders and foliage as the seasons change. Enjoy one complimentary beverage of beer, wine, Champagne or soda. We also have hot cocoa onboard (spiked and regular). A Fall themed lunch served family-style of soup, sandwiches, salad and dessert is also included.

Cruise up the Hudson River to see the magical foliage of the Palisades on this lightly narrated tour. Private tables will be assigned per reservation in the grand salon. Enjoy the views of the New Jersey Palisades - one of the areas most dramatic geological riverside features.
