Come See History,
During our months of operation, we work in conjunction with the Hudson/Athens lighthouse Association providing access to the lighthouse for tours. For 2014, visit the historic Hudson/Athens Lighthouse on the second Saturday of the month starting in July from 11:30am-3pm, for only $25 per adult and $10 per child under 12 years. Take a tour guided by someone raised in the Lighthouse. We also provide scenic cruises on Sundays from 1pm-3:00pm. All other times cruises or tours not annotated will be by special appointment only. We also provide special school and group tours and we support the teaching of education to our children. Come by and take a tour guided by someone who was raised in the Lighthouse. Call us for more information and we'll help arrange for your tour.
Tourboat Group Charters
Your Small Little Escape,
2014 is going to be a busy season for us with our group charters and water tours. Every year, we book numerous private tours and charters on our "Little Spirit of the Hudson". We can arrange for your group to be on your own private boat with up to 15 guest. Whether you want to take a private lighthouse tour, do some island hopping and visit the sandy beaches of the Hudson River, go exploring, or have a nice private getaway with a small group of friends and guest. On our small private tourboat, you can bring a picnic basket, or cooler filled with your own drinks and snacks. The Little Spirit of Hudson is the only boat that can offer this service close by and give you access to areas of the river that you have not seen before. Call us today and we can discuss various options for your own private tour or charter.
