Fall Foliage Disclaimer:

*Peak fall foliage is not guaranteed. We have seen fall colors at their peak as early as mid-October and as late early December along the waterfront in the Palisades of New Jersey (the prime destination of our fall foliage excursions). Refunds due to ‘lack of color’, will not be honored. Cruising on the Hudson River, north by the Palisades, is a grand, beautiful, unique and interesting route and is the declared value of this excursion.

FAQs

DO I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK THE ENTIRE TIME?
When in our interior spaces, masks are required - covering both your nose and mouth, unless you are seated in your assigned table and you are enjoying food or beverage. Masks are no longer required on our outdoor spaces.

HOW MUCH SPACE IS BETWEEN ME AND THE NEXT PERSON?
This will vary based on attendees. Do note that face masks are required by each guest in indoor areas, capacity is reduced to follow the current New York State Guidelines depending on the venue, and private "zones" or private "tables" will be designated.
