The ride up to Bear Mountain was great. There were ample amounts of seats aboard the boat. You were able to bring your picnic basket full of goodies for your lunch and breakfast for the day. You had the option of sitting on the inside or the...continued

The ride up and down the Hudson on an late summer day was pleasant--the scenery was beautiful and the captain offered a lot of fun facts about different sites on the river and on land (visible from the river). Bear Mountain State Park is a lovely...continued

This is a nice way to spend a day on a weekend. The boat ride was pleasant. Weather - gorgeous (that helped a lot). Octoberfest was a fine event, too. Good beer, good food, nice music. The food was all fresh, fun to try, and we did not find it...continued

This trip is what you make of it. We had a great time, but were totally prepared with snacks, wine, sweaters and cash. It's a great getaway with some pretty amazing scenery.
All in all, the toilets are clean, the crew and staff are friendly, the...continued

The ride is about 5 hours RT. On the way up it gets chilly so we needed multiple layers but the sun came out and it wasn't too bad. My two friends had to buy sweatshirts on the boat. The leaves were starting to change so it was really pretty. On...continued

Great time...bring your own snacks and alcohol for the boat! Do not wear heels - there is a 10 - 15 minute walk up a steep hill to the event. The line for the main food stand is super long - too long. Get a picnic table when you first get there...continued

The boat ride was enjoyable since we got to see the beautiful scenery up the Hudson river. Our tour guide was informative and friendly and so was everyone else. The boat ride going to Bear Mountain is about 3 hours and then when you get there you...continued

The boat ride was nice, although there were several obnoxious people who were very loud, rude and inconsiderate of those who sat near them. These same people became even more unruly after having drunk large amounts of beer at the Oktoberfest,...continued

The trip up the Hudson was lovely, and the Oktoberfest was great - lots of vendors and nothing overpriced. There is one important thing: Once the boat docks, it is a very steep 10-15 minute walk up to Oktoberfest - a very difficult climb for older...continued

The boat ride was 5 hours round trip, and you only get to spend 2 hours at Bear Mountain. Bear Mountain IS very pretty, and the boat ride is scenic with an informative tour guide, but it was almost impossible to hear him over the noise of the...continued

This was definitely worth the $24 that I paid through Goldstar, but not the $49 Circle Line charges. The announcer was informative without being annoying. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time at Oktoberfest. However, a few things...continued

Alot of fun, a great deal and a wonderful way to spend the day with friends and family. Unfortunately the day we went was a little cloudy, but the cruise was lovely (ship was very clean), the Oktoberfest was a ton of fun and there was plenty of...continued

Had a great time! Everyone on the Circle Line was friendly, the boat ride was smooth and scenic and the Bear Mountain festivities were lovely! Would definitely recommend. Bring layers--it's cold outside on the boat but perfect within the park.

It was SO great and relaxing to get out of the city for a day. The gentle hum of the boat helped too. The views were fantastic and it helped that we went on a gorgeous day. The dock was flooded when we arrived which created difficult traversing...continued

Great and nice crew, informative narration. Wonderful to see the hometown from water. If they can sell those map on boat, it will even be better.
Bring food for picnic on the dock or the park. Atmosphere for the Octobefest is wonderful too. But a...continued

I did this with a group of 7, and we all had a great time. The outside on the boat does get chilly and windy, so do dress accordingly. It was a bit early in the season to see the changing leaves, but we enjoyed the scenery nonetheless. I had...continued

Sailing up and down The Hudson made the trip worthwhile. If you are not in good physical shape walking up the mountain is very, very difficult. Would suggest that Circile Line/Goldstar investigate if a van/bus shuttle service could be offered...continued
