Review from Goldstar Member

Nice relaxing boat trip to bear mountain.Points of interest Once off of boat lots of walking. Animal preserve to see. There are arts and crafts and food to buy. Make sure you are back to boat on time or you will be left behind.

Review from Amanda Farrell

The boat is huge and crowded, so it's actually very difficult to find two seats together, making people very territorial about "saved seats" and scouting. There are so many people, the chatter is extremely loud and reminds me of lunch time in...continued

Review from Bertie Trager

Boat ride chairs very uncomfortable for 2 1/2 hrs each way.
Coffee for $3.50 way to much money.
Loved Bear Mountain and all the festivities

Review from Trish

Even though it rained on the boatride back, my family & I had the best day ever!! I will definately be going on this next year. If you're thinking of going, just keep in mind a few things...take a light jacket as it is chilly on the boat....continued

The festival was great - lots of people - plenty of food and lots of beer on hand.

Review from Andres Emilio Soto

The weather was a bit cold but we brought hoodies and blankets and a ton of beer and food on the boat. Didn't spend a penny at Bear Mountain and had a great time relaxing and enjoying the walking paths

This is my second time on the Oktoberfest cruise. The first time was in the fall of 2010. It has definitely gained in popularity over the years and the boat was packed! I appreciated that you can still bring picnic items on board and it offset...continued

Review from nativenyer

I did not attend due to the dangers of Hurricane Sandy which is still raging now. Circle Line did not cancel the event. I was told by an employee up at the Octoberfest event that the dock up there at Bear Mountain was flooding. I assumed then that...continued

Review from nativenyer

This was not what I expected. I was looking forward to a nice trip on the Hudson with foliage and good eats. It was totally opposite. A great majority of the boat trippers were totally drunk when they got on board. Too many young people getting...continued

Review from Genevieve Dinsay

It was nice esp when you get there. Bear Mountain is beautiful. The festival was small but the scenery was really nice. I don't think there's enough time to go hiking. Food and beer was good.

Review from Denise Haywood

Oktoberfest Celebration this is not! I feel like I got tourist trapped! Long lines for awful food. Absolutely nothing to do. I could have gone to my local bar and had a better time. I didn't even enjoy the boat ride because it was freezing. Did...continued

Review from Marna

This was an excellent value for the 2 1/2 hour trip to Bear Mountain and back. We were very lucky that the weather ended up being lovely until the trip back when we had a real downpour. But that cleared up in time to still enjoy sitting outside...continued

Review from All About A Good Time

We had an early start to the day leaving from NJ to NY at 7:30a. The hope was to find available street parking... mission accomplished. We found parking right on 46th street and 10th. The boat was clean and the boarding system was efficient. There...continued

Review from Edy DiGiacco Vicente

It states that you can not bring food onto the boat well this is not true. We did not any food and we had to buy from the concession stand that was extremely expensive while many many other people were enjoying their own snacks,food and drink. The...continued
