  • Everything about the storied history of Bannerman Island and Castle is interesting. Well worth the trip and tour. 
  • I knew the ruins photos and wanted to look at least from a distance from them. It is not signposted and you have to search long to find a job, from which the ruins can be seen. Conclusion, not really worth. Unless you have the time for a kayaking tour.

  • This was a great day trip from NYC. Took about 2.5 hours, which included a ferry ride from Newburgh and a very good narrated tour. Castle is very photogenic and the tour was very interesting. There's ...  more »

  • My wife, my daughter and I took the boat ride and tour out of the Beacon waterfront. The island is beautiful and the history fascinating,and great photo ops. Staff at the dock, on the boat and on the island were all great - very friendly and knowledgeable. Ken (our island guide) shared personal photos and stories they had about the site.
  • I work for the Bannerman's tour group and I love the history as well at the crew and experience you can have on the island from plays and tours to watching the art project constellation glow in the night.
  • Interesting history a short boat ride away from Beacon. We did the sunset cruise on Friday evening and purchased tickets online. Whole experience took a couple hours.
  • Tried to visit here with my infant and 3 year old... but was told I would need to buy tickets for each of them... which is pretty unfair if you ask me, especially considering how pricey the tickets are
  • It would be great if Bannerman Castle got fixed up but each year it's falling down a little more. What a shame that the State didn't fix it up 30 years ago before it got to this point. There are lots of good people trying their best to preserve it but progress has been slow. A little history being lost.
