Bear Mountain Oktoberfest
Sail with Seastreak to Oktoberfest at Bear Mountain!
Enjoy a beautiful Fall Foliage cruise along the Hudson River & then enjoy the fun of Oktoberfest at Bear Mountain! The festivities are filled with quintessential Bavarian traditions, foods, and, you guessed it, beer. You might be wondering why Germans get to have all the fun because Oktoberfest sounds pretty amazing. Instead of booking a ticket to Munich, spend a fraction of the money and book a ticket to Oktoberfest at Bear Mountain with Seastreak!
Once you’re there, hop off the boat and try a pretzel or bratwurst, dance to polka, and drink a stein of classic German beer. Experience Bavarian customs like you never have before and embrace the festive atmosphere of this yearly tradition, without having to take an overnight flight!
Admission to Oktoberfest is free, but skip the parking fee and the headache by taking Seastreak. The ride to Bear Mountain is both relaxing and beautiful, whether you want to catch up on your sleep in our cushioned seats or take in the breathtaking scenery on the Hudson River.
Once you arrive at Bear Mountain it is a *1 mile paved picturesquenature walk along a paved uphill trail*, with beautiful views of the Elks Head Statue, Bear Mountain and the Hudson River! Stop along the way at the Trail side Museums and Zoo!
**The pathway from the dock to Bear Mountain State Park is a .6 mile walk up hill. The first .3 mile is extremely steep and rugged. The pathway is not Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant.**
