ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Looking for one of the best ways to soak up the Albany skyline? Look no further than the Dutch Apple! Built in 1986, Albany’s riverboat is derived from popular Hudson River day-liners of an earlier era.

Round trip cruises depart from the intersection of Broadway and Quay Street—at 141 Broadway in Albany—and head south to Castleton before coming back to Albany. The ride is similar to ones that would glide across the waters of the Hudson River, taking passengers to and from ports between Albany and New York City.

Anthony Renna and his family took over in 1999. He loves his job and says nothing beats being on the water.

The first 45 minutes of a cruise touches on Albany’s rich history. In the second part, passengers can relax, listen to music, and enjoy the sights. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a bald eagle! In addition to sightseeing cruises, the Dutch Apple offers private rentals and themed rides. For more details, and a current schedule, visit their website.
