What is Not Included?

Not Included

  • Gratuity is not included unless you purchased the ‘Groups of 10 or more’ ticket type where a 10% gratuity is automatically applied. If you do end up obtaining 10 or more individual tickets by separate purchases, you will be contacted to make an advance payment of a 10% Group Gratuity.
  • We do not guarantee peak NYC 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.
  • Food is not included. We encourage you to bring your own picnic!

General FAQs about all our excursions.


  • On the Hudson in the Adirondack
    The sail up the Hudson was well worth the money. For the same cost as a show or a bus tour, you get a relaxing, quiet look at the Manhattan skyline and NJ Palisades. Plus, drinks! Food and a knowledgeable, friendly crew are included. There seemed to be little space to retreat to if it rained, so be prepared for the prevailing weather conditions. We sailed on a crisp November day, and it felt like we successfully extended our Summer vacation.

  • Relaxing Hudson Sail
    The Adirondack’s staff provides a comfortable environment on a relaxing sail up the Hudson River. The views are great along the Jersey coastline and the Manhattan skyline as always. A simple lunch combined with exotic local brewery beverages, makes for a great start of the season. Photography fan? This schooner sail will set you up with great telescopic shots of the GW bridge and a small hidden lighthouse under it. This sail is a great outing for a first date or to be reminiscent of past ones. Calm, relaxing, and soothing.

    We just experienced a lovely day on Adirondack. For those looking for relaxation, fantastic views, great lunch, nice drink choices, a chance to catch up with friends or spouse this is the trip for you. I had done the Newport, Rhode Island harbor sail this summer and thought it would be an excellent day trip for my girlfriends in NYC.
