Whale Watch Cruise:
It’s all aboard as we enjoy a 3.5-hour long Whale Watch & Dolphin Adventure Cruise on the 95-foot long American Princess with its large canopied upper deck, open main deck, and cabin with cushioned seating.
After departing Sheepshead Bay, we pass the Marine Parkway Bridge, where peregrine falcons have been seen diving for prey. While passing the Breezy Point jetty, dolphins often appear off the coast of New York City and have been known to jump near and under the American Princess.
Further offshore toward Ambrose Channel, the entrance to New York harbor, we may see the blow of a whale and hear the captain shout, “Thar she blows!”
There is a 90% rate of whale and/or dolphin sightings, however, this is not guaranteed. If luck is on our side, we may view humpback whales that are approximately 45 feet in length and weighing about 40 tons.
Prior to boarding our cruise, let’s stop by Coney Island for a visit! Take a stroll along the historic boardwalk, feel the sand between your toes on the beach, and take in the endless views of the Atlantic Ocean. Lunch is not included, but feel free to pack your own sandwich and snacks. Coolers are not allowed, but snacks and cold drinks are available for purchase on board.
Whether rain or shine, many dolphins or whales or none at all, it’s always a great day cruising out in the bay!
