There are few things as beautiful as the change of seasons.  At Seastreak the switch from Summer to Autumn is particularly special because of this season’s special cruises.  Every autumn we like to give our customers a chance to see the beauty of the changing leaves from the comfort of a seat on one of our luxurious vessels.


Sail with Seastreak on a Hudson River Fall Foliage Day Cruise with a stop at Cold Spring, NY! 


Board at Highlands, NJ, or Pier 11 / Wall St. in New York in the morning, then grab a cup of coffee and take in the sights as you sit back and cruise up the Hudson.  We will follow the majestic river as she meanders under the George Washington Bridge, past the Cloisters and catch some breathtaking views of the Palisades.  Later we will cruise along the shores of Hastings-on-the-Hudson, Tarrytown, Ossining, Croton Point, Haverstraw, Stony Point, Bear Mountain, and West Point!  Your cruise will also be narrated by an expert on the history of the Hudson!


The Seastreak ferry stops in Cold Spring, NY, and Newburgh, NY,  for a leisurely lunch break, and gives passengers the chance to get off the boat and stretch their legs.  Passengers may disembark at either Cold Spring, or at Newburgh.

Main Street in Cold Spring is filled with quaint shops and cafes, so you’re sure to find something to satisfy your appetite.  Visit,, or if you like to plan ahead.

Next stop: the Newburgh, NY waterfront!  You’ll be delighted with the selection of restaurants sited along the majestic Hudson.  From the best smoked ribs and wings in the east, to elegant Northern Italian fare, you are sure to find a tasty treat or two at: Billy Joe’s Ribworks, Captain Jake’s, Cena 2000, The River Grille, or at Torches on the Hudson.  After your meal, enjoy a lovely stroll along the waters edge.
