Autumn is one of the most gorgeous times of the year. The captivating colors of fall foliage are truly breathtaking and a beautiful backdrop for family and seasonal portraits. The Long Island Sound is surrounded by beautiful fall foliage this time of year, so now is the perfect time to hop aboard our three-deck luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess to experience the magic of the autumn season!
Fall Foliage Lighthouse Tour
This year, we are so excited to be setting sail on several fall foliage lighthouse tours and we would love for you to join in on the fun! Typically, the fall foliage season peaks in late October. We recommend consulting New York State’s fall foliage report to get the most out of your Skyline Cruise. Book your preferred date and hop aboard as we sail from the World’s Fair Marina to Sand’s Point Lighthouse and back for a memorable 2.5-hour trip! Landmarks that we will be viewing include:
- Stepping Stone Lighthouse
- Executions Rock Lighthouse
- Sands Point Lighthouse
- Fort Totten
- Fort Schuyler
- U.S. Merchant Marine Academy
- Hart and City Islands
- Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges
- Gold Coast of Long Island, and much more!
We encourage everyone to bring your own food, beverages, and cooler so that you can kick back and relax with your loved ones. We also encourage everyone to bring along your cameras and your binoculars to take in and capture the stunning views.
Due to shifting clouds and sunlight, taking photos outdoors can create interesting results. During the fall months, the midday sun along with stunning blue skies makes red and orange foliage pop, thus creating gorgeous photo opportunities! Cloudy days offer picturesque opportunities as shadows help to create unique points of interest! According to Canon, when taking outdoor photos with a combination of warm and cool colors, using a polarizing lens filter can reduce reflections from water, make skies a darker blue, and enhance cloud contrast, all of which helps balance colors and make the whole scene more vivid!
Your Safety is Our Top Priority
Given the current climate of our world, we want you to rest assured that while safety has always been our top priority, it is even more so these days. We continue to actively monitor COVID-19 and its implications and continue to go above and beyond to meet or exceed NYC guidelines for health and safety. The Skyline Princess is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to each sailing, and social distancing protocols are strictly followed. This includes bathroom attendants to monitor the number of passengers allowed in at one time, designated up and down staircases, and private tables so that groups who come together can enjoy their food away from others.
