More Information


See the last leaves of fall in all their colorful splendor on Classic Harbor Line’s last scenic sail up the Hudson River to the Palisades.

Forming a canyon of the Hudson River north of Fort Lee, New Jersey, the Palisades are among the most dramatic geologic features in New York City’s vicinity. Now you can observe this natural wonder from the seat with the best view — on the water aboard the Schooner Adirondack.

During this autumn sightsail, you will:

  • Sail north on the Hudson, with unsurpassed views of the city’s Upper West Side

  • Enter the the Palisades along the west side of the Hudson River, a picturesque area lined with breathtaking cliffs and nature views

  • Admire the orange, golden and brown leaves of the Fall season

  • Experience a Hudson River Valley excursion unlike any other

Lunch and drinks will be served during the sail. Lunch will consist of an assortment of sandwiches, fruit, chips and desserts. (One quick note: they will serve a few rounds of drinks, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. They aim to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all of our guests.)

About the Ticket Supplier: Classic Harbor Line LLC

Built in 1994 in the Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, the Schooner Adirondack is an 80-foot wooden replica of a classic turn-of-the-century pilot schooner.

Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor's Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.

The 1920s-style motor yacht "Manhattan," also built by Scarano Boat Building, is brand new to the New York City harbor as of spring 2006. This 80-foot, wood-trimmed, Gilded Era commuter yacht runs full circumnavigations of Manhattan, dinner cruises and sunset cruises, and is available for private charter.
