Leaf peeping by boat in the Mid Hudson Valley|Rip Van Winkle

The fall leaves bring tourists to the Mid Hudson Valley region. There are many ways to engage in leaf peeping, however, in this post we will be considering leaf peeping by boat.

Hudson River Cruises located at the Rondout in Ulster County operates the Rip Van Winkle. which offers 2 hour tours on the Hudson River.

The next logical question would be: When does leaf peeping begin in the Mid Hudson Valley? Leaf peeping will be at its best in Mid October and the Rip Van Winkle will start the 2 hour Leaf Peeping tour on October 11th.

This tour is available from Tuesday through Sunday with the cruise starting at 2:30 PM

How much does it cost?

Adults $21

Children 4-11 $13

Over 65 $19

Under 4 Free

There is a $2.00 coupon available on the website

Contact 800-843-7472 or hudsonrivercruises@hvc.rr.com

Fall Hudson River scene

I have taken the 2 hour cruise and it was well worth it.

I can't sell you the Hudson River, only views. I would be delighted to help you find a Hudson Valley home.
