Question from Giuseppe C.
I booked a class/cruise (Full Day Cruise to Bear Mountain and Back) and it comes with a breakfast buffet and lunch. They give a description of the food but is there any more details? Specially, are there vegan options? ​
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Guiseppe! There really aren't many vegan options on the Full Day Cruise to Bear Mountain. The school will serve salad and roasted potatoes that are vegan, but that's about it. The guests are welcome to bring their own food onboard.
Question from Erika A.
Are small dogs allowed?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Erika! Due to safety concerns, the only dogs allowed on board are authorized service animals. Hope this helps!

Question from Rosalia W.
Hello! We would like to come to this tour with myself 43 years old, my husband 43 years old and our Children daughter and son (11 and 7 years old). They are used to boats as we live in the Caribbean and go on boats every weekend. Is it possible 4 of us to come on 05th August?
Answer from Lindsey C. Verified Student
The food is good and it might be a little boring for kids. But no doubt they have something to distract them.
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Rosalia, the tour on August 5th is already sold out but Classic Harbor Line will contact you if seats become available.

Question from SONIA T.
Can I bring my bike with me? Or is there a place I would be able to rent a bike?
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Sonia! Unfortunately, they do not have the space to accommodate bikes on the boat and there is no place to rent one when you get there. However, there is canoeing, hiking, and a zoo that the students can enjoy.
