A Scenic Cruise up the Hudson River

See more of the Hudson River than any other day-cruise by riding with Seastreak on a luxury, high-speed catamaran! In addition to getting up-close views of the beautiful Hudson River shores, you’ll pass landmarks like the George Washington Bridge, The Palisades, West Point Military Academy, the idyllic town of Cold Spring, and even the historic Bannerman Castle on your way to Milton, NY.

Once in Milton, leisurely explore the town and surrounding area on your own or join us on the all-inclusive Wine Tour Excursion!

  • Option 1: Wine Tour to Weed Orchard & Quartz Rock Vineyard

    Upon arrival in Milton, passengers who purchased a Wine Tour ticket will be split into two groups and bussed to the vineyards. One group will visit Weed Orchard first, and the other group will visit Quartz Rock Vineyard first. Following the tasting at each vineyard, the groups will reboard the buses and be transported to the other vineyard.


    Weed Orchard: Located at the base of the Marlboro Mountains is Weed Orchard. This beautiful countryside farm has been family run for over 100 years, and in 2014, a Winery was established on the property. At Weed Orchard, enjoy a guided tasting of 4 wines and a delicious lunch consisting of margherita pizza, Ceasar salad, and apple cider donuts. When you’re done with lunch and finished sipping your wine, you’ll head over to Quartz Rock Vineyard for the next round of indulgence.


    Quartz Rock Vineyard: This small, boutique winery on a rustic, working fruit farm, produces award-winning wines in small batches, exclusively from fruit grown just steps away from where you’ll enjoy the finished product. Instead of receiving a flight, each of the five tasting wines will be poured for guests individually by knowledgeable wine associates. 


    Lunch at Weed Orchard and wine tastings at Weed Orchard and Quartz Rock Vineyard are included in the price of the ticket! Quartz Rock Vineyard also has small snacks available for purchase.

  • Option 2: Basic Cruise Ticket

    If you would rather spend the day exploring Milton and the surrounding area on your own, you can purchase a ticket with no excursion add-on for $129/Adult or $89/Child. This option does not include a bus ride to another location.


    You will have 4 hours to sightsee, so consider calling an uber to check out the famous Walkway over the Hudson, a local spa, farm, brewery or a waterfront restaurant. If you prefer to stay active, roam the charming small town by foot or bike! Just be sure to return to the dock for final boarding for the trip home at 3:25pm.
