Shades of Autumn – Fall foliage tour

NY Waterway’s “Shades of Autumn” cruise celebrates the arrival of the fall season with fun and enjoyment for cruise goers of all ages. Shades of Autumn is a non-stop, four and half hour tour offering views of the exquisite fall foliage along the Hudson River that has inspired writers and artists for 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 welcome 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!
