Bring history to life on a West Point campus tour!

Travel to the United States Military Academy via a luxury Seastreak catamaran and join a tour of the facility. Admire the fall foliage lining the shores of the Hudson River as you cruise north while listening to the live narration provided by our host and enjoying a tasty lunch. Upon arrival on campus, you will board a tour bus with a professional guide who will bring you to all the must-see locations!

  • Learn about West Point’s unique place in America’s history and its continuing role in shaping the country’s future

    The 2-hour tour will tell the complete story of West Point, including its role in the Revolution, its famous history, the cadet experience, and stories about graduates who shaped our nation. Once docked, passengers will board a tour bus with a professional guide who will bring you to all the must-see locations. This tour of West Point makes stops to stretch your legs at Cadet Chapel, the Plain (which is the Cadet academic area), West Point Cemetery, Old Cadet Chapel, and Trophy Point with the million-dollar view overlooking the Hudson River. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes – more than an hour of walking is required to explore all the sights!

  • Tasty lunch and a full-service bar

    Lunch will be served on the boat as we approach the destination. Complimentary sandwiches, pasta salads, garden salads and cookies will be available. Passengers may choose to dine on the boat before the tour or take a to-go box to bring on the bus tour at West Point. Passengers who opt to bring a to-go lunch on the bus tour may eat at the West Point Visitors Center.

     In addition to lunch, the bartenders at our full-service bar will be ready to serve you your favorite beverages at any point during the cruise.

  • Important: Background check requirement

    In order to attend the West Point tour, you must have a background check completed. After Seastreak tickets are purchased, customers must click the link with the corresponding date to input accurate ID information so that security can run background checks. You may also find the link to the West Point Tours background check in an email that will be sent to passengers after Seastreak tickets are purchased. If this step is not completed, you will not be able to travel to West Point and refunds will not be issued. Please reach out at 1-800-BOAT-RIDE or if you have any questions.
