NEW YORK, NY, September 2004 - Why drive when you can sail through a
scenic day on the Hudson River this fall. Spend a day with Circle Line
Sightseeing Cruises and catch natures fireworks filled with bursts of
yellow, orange, red, green, purple and brown dotting the coast line in
all its magnificent glory. Fall on the East Coast is spectacular and
not having to drive yourself to enjoy it makes it a truly wonderful
and relaxing experience that will live on.

Whether in town for the week or living in the area, a Fall Foliage
cruise with Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises is an ideal way to spend a
day without spending too much. "We haven't even raised our prices
since 2001 because we want this decision to be an easy one," said Mr.
Andreas Sappok, Vice President General Manager, Circle Line
Sightseeing Cruises. For just $45 for adults, $40 for seniors and $30
for children ages three 3 - 12, and children under two and under are
free. Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises invites you to join them every
Saturday in October when they embark on a mini adventure fit for the
whole family. Prices and schedules are subject to change without

Guests will board at 8:30am and the ship will set sail at 9:00am
surrounding you with the crisp autumn air and awesome views including
the Palisades, Grant's Tomb, George Washington Bridge, the Cloisters
and the Tappan Zee Bridge as the vessel makes its way up the scenic
Hudson River to historic Bear Mountain where you will have the
opportunity to disembark for two-hours. The ship will return to Pier
83 at 5:30pm giving you plenty of time to still enjoy a nice dinner in
New York City.

Bear Mountain is the flagship of the Palisades Interstate Park System
situated 45 miles north of New York City, in the Hudson Highlands.
Facilities include playing fields, picnic groves, rowboat docks,
nature trails, basketball court, Trailside Museums and Zoo, Iona
Island Estuarine Reserve and Bird Refuge, Perkins Tower and the newly
constructed Merry-Go-Round and pavilion. The park features an
extensive system of pedestrian and hiking trails, including the first
segment of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and a key segment of
the Long Path. Also located on the park grounds is The Bear Mountain
Inn, a rustic style historic building listed on the National Register
of Historic Places.

On October 2nd, 9th and 16th, Bear Mountain will be hosting its annual
Oktoberfest and invite guests of Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises Fall
Foliage tours to join then in an afternoon filled with music, dancing,
food, vendors and more. Admission to Oktoberfest is complimentary.

For an additional $12 per person, Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises will
provide you with a wonderful lunch. Including cookies and a soda, you
can choose from the cold salad plate which blends tuna, egg and
chicken salad; the grilled vegetable wrap; grilled chicken sandwich;
tomato and fresh mozzerella sandwich or the cold fried chicken
platter. All lunch requests must be pre-ordered.

While many places up north will have lost its foliage glory, New York
and the historic Hudson Valley will still be teaming with fall colors
through October. So why not sail with Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises
on the only fall foliage cruise from New York City to Bear Mountain
when fall is at its peak. Tickets can be purchased by calling
212-563-3200 or visiting the ticket office at Pier 83 in New York City.
