Scenic Fall Foliage and Lighthouse Cruises Return
A Skyline Cruise is always a great idea, whether for a special event like a wedding, corporate fundraiser, birthday or anniversary party, school trip, and more, or a more casual excursion, like a romantic date or a fun day on New York Harbor.
Autumn adds a new dimension to our popular cruises by allowing us to see the natural beauty of the season while enjoying all the usual amenities a Skyline lunch or dinner cruise provides.
Prepare for the most scenic two-and-a-half hours of your autumn! Not only do you get nature’s magnificent palette on full display, but also an array of picturesque and historic locations.
Some of the notable sights you’ll see during our lighthouse cruises include:
- Execution Rocks
- Sands Point
- Stepping Stones lighthouses
- Fort Schuyler
- Fort Totten
- The Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy
- Throg’s Neck Bridge
- Whitestone Bridge
- Long Island’s Gatsby-Era Gold Coast and its mansions
Our lighthouse cruises are fully narrated, so you don’t miss any scenic details. It’s a great experience for dates and a family excursion. Sip apple cider while sailing, taking in the gorgeous views, and enjoy Skyline’s fantastic food and service.
