With peak foliage season upon us, a cruise up the Hudson River offers a fun way to see the kaleidoscope of colors that autumn brings. Untapped New York is excited to partner with Classic Harbor Line to present boat trips in and around the waters of New York City and the Hudson Valley, where you can see New York’s vibrant fall colors in all their splendor. The first couple weeks of November are your last chance to hop aboard for a  fall foliage cruise before holiday river tours begin later in the month. It’s the perfect time to set sail as leaves are at peak colors!

Classic Harbor Line tours are conducted on modern vessels inspired by historic yachts and schooners. Built by Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, these ships pair twenty-first-century amenities with classic style. The luxurious, mahogany-trimmed Yacht Manhattan and Manhattan II, are inspired by the glamour of the 1920s. These boats will be your cozy vessel through the water.

The boats feature both outdoor and indoor seating, both with clear views of the scenery surrounding you. To help keep you warm on the windy waters, guests are treated to a complimentary fall-themed hot beverage to enjoy while taking in views you can only get from being on the water.

There are three different foliage experiences to choose from including an afternoon brunch cruise and a narrated cruise hosted by an Urban Naturalist! On the narrated tour, you’ll hear an exciting live narration of the geology and ecology of the Hudson River as you sail up the Palisades.
