You are NOT allowed to bring any outside liquids or beverages on board (even bottle water). We have a full bar where you can purchase alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Ice water is also available free of charge.
You CAN bring food on sightseeing cruises. We also have a snack bar on board with light fare for purchase (hot dogs, chips, ice cream & candy).
We cruise rain or shine. The Dutch Apple offers the protection of two fully enclosed and heated/ac decks. We also have an open area top deck with seating and tables for nicer sunny days.
All cruise ticket sales final and are NON REFUNDABLE or EXCHANGEABLE. We do not offer refunds on cruise tickets under any circumstances.
Dutch Apple Cruises has a free parking lot available right on site.
Sightseeing tickets for adults are $19.95. Children 2 years and under are free of charge. Children 3 years to 10 years are $12.00 (above 10 years is adult price). Seniors tickets are $18.95. We also offer AAA & Military discounted rates of $18.95 ticket.
We do have many people in wheelchairs come on our cruises, but we are not legally handicapped equipped. We have a ramp to board the boat and deckhands that will assist upon boarding. Passengers board on the mid deck area – the person in the wheelchair would be confined to the inside area on this deck. This deck is also where our bar and snack bar is located. Our bathrooms are located on the lowest deck, which requires the use of stairs (the bathrooms are smaller as well and are not handicap accessible).
Dutch Apple Cruises is located at 141 Broadway, Albany, NY 12202. We are located on the Hudson Riverfront, right next to the USS Slater. For directions, please CLICK HERE.
We accept, cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover & American Express.
Sightseeing cruises leave from 141 Broadway, Albany, NY and head south on the Hudson River. We will get to Van Weis Point (just shy of Castleton, NY) and then turn around and head back to Albany. The first half of the cruise there will be narration, the second half music is played.
Our Hudson River Historian will narrate about the history of Albany. They will discuss current events in the industrial port area and tell fun facts about the beautiful homes along the riverfront. They will also point out the wildlife along the Hudson River – hopefully you will get to see a bald eagle (we do on almost every trip!)
With your safety in mind, we suggest low heeled or soft soled shoes. Dress weather appropriately (Spring & Fall you might want to bring a jacket). If you plan on buying alcoholic beverages you will need a government issued ID with photograph. Don't forget to bring your binoculars for eagle sightings!
The Dutch Apple cruise season runs from mid to end of April (weather permitting) through the end of October.
