Convenient cruise from Manhattan to beautiful Bear Mountain. It's very scenic and relaxing. The Oktoberfest is a small area. A little lightweight compared to others but the beer and music were good. Be prepared for a long day. It takes 3 hours...continued

The boat ride was lovely. Once we got there it was scenic. An enjoyable day out of the City!

This was a great trip, especially for the price. It's a full day, 3 hours each way along the Hudson and close to 3 hours on Bear Mountain. They give a great history lesson on the way up but it's difficult to hear as everyone is talking. Pack a...continued

Great day trip out of the city. (If you have difficulty walking this may not be the trip for you as there is a fairly long steep trek up a hill). Beautiful setting. The drinks on the boat were pricey $12 mixed drink and $7.75 for a beer,...continued

The boat left the dock late since there were so many passengers, and they took FOREVER to board us. We were delayed in arrival due to strong head winds up the Hudson (not their fault). However, the trip up
took 2.5 hours, and we were told to...continued

too crowded.
to our luck it was extremely cold for an October day.
Some of the security people were very rude, some were nice.
Nice experience.
Will I do it again?
don't think so...
Thanks

Crowded and noisy - like being in steerage on the Titanic.

We enjoyed some parts of this cruise.

Beware- the cruise is 3 hours EACH way. It's a very long time to go out there to spend only 2.5-3 hours on shore.

The cruise itself was fine but the weather was a bit on the cold side- bring layers and...continued

Great tour for the whole day. Zoo, small museum and fair with great beer included. Really worth it!

A nice boat ride, with an informative tour guide from a Circle Line guide...I agree that Oktoberfest was overrated: limited beers to try, one wine, the "crafts" could've been sold on any street corner....however the music was nice, and the state...continued

Good News: Bear Mountain is nice park and the cruise up there can be beautiful views. For $24 , tough to beat

Bad News: 3 hr trip up , 3 hr trip back, and you get 3 hrs at Octoberfest which is basically a mini street fair with german food. 10...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

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
