What is Not Included?

Not Included

  • Gratuity is not included, unless you purchase the ‘Groups of 8 or more’ ticket type, in which a 15% gratuity will be automatically applied, while separate purchases of 8 or more individual tickets will result in a request for an advance payment of a 15% group gratuity.
  • There is no guarantee of peak fall foliage. We have seen fall colors peak as early as mid-October and as late as early December along the waterfront in the Palisades of New Jersey (the prime destination of our fall foliage excursions). We will not honor refunds for ‘lack of color’. Cruising on the Hudson River, north by the Palisades, is a unique and interesting route and is the declared value of this excursion.

General FAQs about all our excursions.


  • Cruise only Hudson
    The scenery was lovely and the food was delicious. The Canadian couple we were showing NYC had never been to NY before so we thought it would be a great way to see Manhattan from the water. Going all the way to the Tappan Zee was pretty. Manhattan had so many interesting sights to see. The crew was very helpful and very friendly. Overall, it was a good experience.

  • Fall Foliage tour much enjoyed by all our party
    This was a socialising event I organized on the spur of the moment from the UK for three work colleagues and our partners coming to a New York for a wedding of an ex colleague. This was first time in New York for most of the people and it turned out that this activity was a perfect relaxation from the usual hectic tourist chase round Manhattan. The motor yachts old time design; it’s compact size but still with good room on deck and a spacious, comfotable saloon were really appreciated The foligage was beautiful; the weather was kind to us and we were all pleasantly suprised by both the quality and selection of the food. The trip length was probably perfect for most people though personally I’d really love to do the longer trip further up the Hudson if the opportunity ever arises.

  • Wonderul Return Visit
    This is our second cruise with Classic Harbor Lines. We loved our tour around manhattan so much we brought friends back for the fall foliage cruise. Thanks to the crew for a great time once again. See you soon!

  • Outstanding experience with excellent staff
    Great captain, terrific bartender and mates that were friendly, well spoken, and had great personality. The food was delicious. Drinks with top shelf liquor were great, I would definitely recommend this ride. You were all very gracious, friendly, and fun.

  • Plentiful food, courteous staff, beautiful cruise
    There were five in my group — two couples and one single. Three of us had been on the Manhattan before, but not for a brunch. We were, again, blown away by the quality and quantify of the food and drink provided. The staff, as always, was efficient, courteous and knowledgeable. We couldn’t have had a more pleasant day, weather-wise, which contributed greatly to our experience. However, we all summarized that, even if it had rained, the whole morning would still have been a pleasure!! Thank you again for a wonderful day!!

  • Terrific trip – great food – thoughtful crew
    We all had a great time on board. We got lucky with the weather, which was picture perfect for a mid October day. the crew was very friendly, and the passengers were a mix of tourists, and local New Yorkers, like ourselves, wanting to act like tourists for a day. The food was never-ending, and very tasty, and the crew was helpful, professional, and friendly. The boat is beautiful, and comfortable inside and out. Of course, it’s great if you have a nice clear day, with relatively warm weather and a calm river, like we had. Thanks for a good time to the whole crew!

  • What a Wonderful Way To Spend a Saturday Afternoon
    The day was sunny but cold. Staff was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Plenty of food. The views were fantastic and the leaves were just magnificent. Enjoyed history and anecdotal stories from captain and crew as we sailed. Our group was outside on the deck a good part of trip. Would definitely recommend this outing!

  • Excellent trip on the Hudson
    We went on the brunch cruise to celebrate my son’s 30th. There were 6 of us and we had a ball. The boat itself was great in that it had lots of glass and openess. I liked the seating as we were able to have our group comfortably together. Staff was great and friendly. Food was very good- 4 courses nicely paced and beautifully presented. It was a gorgeous fall day which didn’t hurt!. 3 hours flew by-highly recommended.

  • A great time at Classic Harbor Line.
    If you enjoy boat rides, this is a fun time. Great foliage views. Really allowed us to take in the beauty of the palisades and magnificent changing of the leaves.
