  • Amazing trip! Aj and Melissa couldn’t have been nicer and made my wife’s birthday a memorable and beautiful experience.

  • Absolutely perfect evening on the boat! We loved the experience! They were so kind - made sure we were comfortable and got up on the front (head) of the boat to see sunset and this historic lighthouse! They also let us bring our dog and we’re so accommodating too, which meant the world to us. It was my boyfriends birthday and they even decorated the boat with a birthday sign and balloons for him. They also brought out a tray of snacks for us. They really go above and beyond to make sure everyone is having fun and also let you feel like you are on a private boat and enjoy your time together. The boat is so big and spacious- hard to tell in the pictures but it’s so comfortable!! Wonderful experience I would HIGHLY recommend this!!

  • We had a fabulous 4 hour sunset cruise with Catskill Charters. What a great way for friends to kick back and relax on a summer evening. The boat is beautiful, comfortable and surpassed everyone's expectations. All our needs were met by our safe, fun and informative Captain AJ & First Mate Melissa of Catskill Charters. We had lots of laughs while taking in spectacular scenery on the Hudson River. So looking forward to cruising with them again. Top notch... Highly recommend!!! Thanks so much!!

  • What a beautiful day on the Hudson!!! AJ and Melissa were spectacular hosts. As we were planning our trip, they responded very quickly to our questions which made for a seamless booking process. Before our arrival, I had shared with them that we were celebrating my husband’s 60th birthday, and we were welcomed to a “Happy Birthday” banner and balloons! My husband loved it!! The boat was very clean with a comfortable rear deck lounge area. It also had a bathroom in the lower cabin as well as a refrigerator and fully stocked kitchen. No need to bring glasses, plates, and utensils. When going slower through the channels, we laid on yoga mats that Melissa gave us to use on the bow of the boat. They had a cooler filled with ice as well as some light snacks for us. We brought our own drinks and lunch as well. We were on the boat from 10am-3pm. We saw bald eagles and light houses, and they shared info about each one. They were very easy going and went out of their way to make it a pleasant experience for us. Would highly recommend them.
