At 8:30 am: good to be at the pier. If you come by public transportation, make sure to get early enough. It is quite a bit of walk to 12th avenue on 42nd street And there are many subway schedule changes in the weekends.
It is a whole day trip:...continued

Like the reviewer said before me, the ride up the Hudson was pleasant and relaxing, but when we got to the Oktoberfest there wasn't much to see or do. There was only place to get food, and it was greasy. Not a beer drinker so I didn't really...continued

This was a nice, mellow way to spend a sunny, fall Sunday. There was nothing negative about the day. It's not a high-energy day, but after the steins of beer at the Oktoberfest, the crowd is definitely more animated & happy on the return. We...continued

The 2 hr 1/2 boat ride to and from was very relaxing and laid back. The captain was friendly and very informative about sites throughout the river. I suggest bringing snacks on the boat as the prices at the snack bar were outrageous. The park was...continued

I had a fantastic time in this event. The boat ride was a lot of fun filled with information about NYC. We did have to hike up a mountain to get to "oktoberfest". I put it in quotes because it was not really oktoberfest it was more like a flea...continued

The boat took about 2.5 hrs to get to Bear Mtn, however, the scenery was wonderful. Make sure to be there on time because they boat leaves on time. Bring your own food & drinks because it is expensive on the boat. This is a great time to go to...continued

The Cruise was nice but I must admit like the other reviews so it does take close to 3 hrs going and 3 hrs coming is a little much. But the day was beautiful and pleasant. We packed a picnic lunch and we were thrilled we did because the lines...continued

We had a pretty terrific time. The crowd, many of them Goldstar people, was a nice surprise, totally enjoyable to be around. The three hour trip up the Hudson was low key, informative, and visually stunning. The announcer/tour guide on this boat...continued

The ride up and down the Hudson was really beautiful. The weather was great and the views were gorgeous. For that, it was the worth the cost. However, I actually took this trip twice and each trip was very different. The first trip, we found...continued

Great time. Get there at 8:30. You spend about 5 hours total on the boat. The tour guide gave us a nice history of the river and the city. Good music at Oktoberfest. Go with a group of friends.

Pleasant boarding experience at Pier 83. Relaxing ride up to Bear Mountain. Nice scenery and Fall Foliage. Upon arriving at Bear Mountain the entire pier was covered under a few inches of water which made getting off the ship almost impossible....continued
