October 14, 2021 – NY Waterway has brought back its ‘Shades of Autumn’ Fall Foliage Tours to celebrate the arrival of the fall season, with the first tours beginning this coming weekend. According to this week’s I LOVE NY Fall Foliage report, the lower Hudson Valley now shows “touches of golden-yellow, red, and orange leaves appearing over the muted green backdrop.”
Tours begin on October 16th and run through November 14th on Saturdays and Sundays, with departures from the Midtown/West 39th Street and Port Imperial/Weehawken ferry terminals.
‘Shades of Autumn’ is an exciting non-stop, four and a half hour tour offering scenic views of the fall foliage along the Hudson River. Passengers can enjoy hot cider, coffee, tea, soft drinks, cocktails, donuts, and sandwiches while an experienced tour guide points out historical sites and local folklore along the route.
Tours leaving from Midtown/West 39th Street depart at 10:00am on Saturdays and Sundays

(Free shuttles throughout Manhattan take people to and from the Midtown Ferry Terminal.)
