Anyone wishing to go to Bear Mountain is better off going on the Metro North and paying for short cab ride.

Six hours of sitting on the boat's hard fold out chairs while listening to a host spat out uninteresting historical facts so that you'll...continued

Bear Mountain was a lot of fun and beautiful. It was great to get out of the city for the day and into nature. Lines can get long so buy everything at once. Get a few beers at a time.

The boat ride was OK, they do not allow you to bring on your...continued

Circle Line got me to Bear Mountain which was great. It's 3 hours EACH WAY. Although the top of the boat is where you want to be, it gets cold up there FAST. The really downside of the trip, you only have 3 hours to enjoy Oktoberfest. We...continued

Great cruise along the Hudson and cute Oktoberfest (some German food options, beer, and some tents with items to buy). Lovely fall views there and back.

I went with my boyfriend to this event and we had a great time. The ride up to Bear Mountain is scenic, but long. As has been said on other reviews, the beer selection was not enormous and consisted of Spaten lager, Spaten Oktoberfest and two...continued

The "Octoberfest" was pretty disappointing. When we showed up the lines to get a beer were crazy. You would think they would figure something out to sell beer to those who wanted it. I can't see waiting on a 30 min line when we only have 3 hours....continued

The boat ride was great. We sat on upper deck inside cause it was chilly in morning. It took 3 hours instead of 2 1/2 cause of high tide, but the scenery was beautiful & really enjoyed the ride. The guy Dave narrating along the way was very funny...continued

The entire day was nice but too long. Firstly, the cruise does not allow you to bring alcohol aboard so do not bring any or they will take it!!! They check your bags. The cruise is long, close to 3 hours, and was quite cold, even inside....continued
