Cruise through the majestic Hudson Highlands aboard the luxurious Pride of the Hudson!


Your adventure will begin at Blu Pointe in Newburgh, NY. Your captain will narrate the sights along the way, including:


  • Washington's Headquarters - established as a historic site in 1850 because George Washington spent so much time here during the Revolutionary War!
  • Mount Beacon - the highest point between the Catskills and the Atlantic Ocean. Beacon fires were built here during the Revolutionary War.
  • Bannerman Island - this historic Island is known for its warehouse, built to resemble a Scottish Castle.
  • Breakneck Mountain - legend has it that the mountain was named for a farmer's bull that fell down the cliff and broke its neck. A granite quarry at its base supplied material for the towers of the Brooklyn Bridge, the base of the Statue of Liberty, and sidewalks in New York City.
  • Cold Spring - a quaint town known for its restaurants and antiques.
  • World's End - the deepest point of the Hudson River. Explorers believed that the river stopped there, but eventually realized that after the sharp “S” bend it continued
