It is way more exciting to see animals in the wild than it is to see them at the zoo. And even here in N.Y Bay we are able to glimpse some animals in their natural habitat. Each fall hundreds of harbor seals start their annual journey from Maine to a warmer waters traveling south until they reach the temperatures waters surroundings the N.Y Bay ( Swinburne Island / Our primary spot watch ).
We will go with the tides coming out and within 1 hour ( 4 Miles ) we should be at the Swinburne Island watch the seals and then come back to our put in with the tides going in .
