The Metro NYC Environmental Meetup Message Board › Winter Seals and Birds of NYC - Eco-Cruise!
|A former member||
What's wild in the winter in NYC you ask? This cruise is going to show you. I really like this one because the way people react to finding out that they don't have to go to Santa Cruz to see seals! Anyhow, if you have any questions, please give me a call at 212.691.7483. Registration is done through Water Taxi and their contact information is below.

Meet at South Street Seaport’s Pier 17. Join us aboard NY Water Taxi's eco-friendly vessel for a winter adventure in New York Harbor! Look for harbor seals hauled out on the rocky shores of Governor's Island and the more remote Hoffman and Swinburne Islands. Learn about the surprisingly diverse winter birds of New York City, including ducks, geese, loons, and sandpipers, many of which migrate south from the Arctic. See the Statue of Liberty and pass under the Verrazano Bridge. Dress warmly and bring your binoculars. Limited to 60, buy tickets early to guarantee a space for this trip.
$35 for adults; $25 for children under 12
