Enjoy a 3.75-hour scenic sail up the Hudson River to the Palisades aboard Schooner Adirondack, an 1890s pilot schooner. Bordering the Hudson River north of Fort Lee, New Jersey, the Palisade Cliffs are among the most dramatic geologic features in New York City's vicinity.

Key Points:
- Enjoy the outdoors and relax aboard a classic sailboat
- Sail north on the Hudson, with unsurpassed views of the Upper West Side
- Pass the Palisades, a picturesque area lined with breathtaking cliffs and a great area for foliage
- Lunch is not included, so guests are welcome to bring their own picnic items onboard
- A few rounds of complimentary beer, wine, champagne, soda & lots of hot cocoa + options for spiking are included in each ticket. The crew will serve a few rounds of drinks, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise.
- Bundle up (bring warm layers depending on the temperature & the breeze)
- Bring your camera! This is typically a great adventure for photography.
