Exciting Boat Cruises to Take in the Hudson Valley
My favorite part about the warm summer months are being in or around the water. Between swimming pools, lakes and local beaches, it’s the most perfect time to soak this up.
The history behind the Hudson River always fascinates me. Named after Henry Hudson himself, this river, Hudson actually stumbled upon this body of water. Sailing along on the Half Moon, Hudson and his crew had no idea of their impact and efforts would be remembered in history for decades.
I have gone on a bunch of cruises throughout the Hudson Valley and it was alot of fun. For me, it’s like a mini party on a boat, aka yacht living on the Hudson.
Whether you sign up for an event, a tour or simply find someone who has a boat, it’s worth it to get out there for a few hours and see all of the beauty that the Hudson Valley and Hudson River has to offer.
Here are local cruises that will sail you around the counties.
