Harbor Seals Return to NYC!

Posted on Jan 18, 2017

Boston has whale watching, and New York City has Harbor Seals!

Bundle up and enjoy a two-hour cruise with your fellow wildlife lovers out to the Verrazano Bridge to see these darling creatures who visit every winter.  Harbor Seals migrate to NYC every year from colder northern points.  Take in the long-tailed ducks, geese, common loons and sandpipers and capture your own photos, up close.

You’ll be amazed at how many kinds of wildlife are in NYC, with over 600 different species calling the Big Apple home. From soaring hawks to curious coyotes, 285 different species of birds migrate each year over Central Park.  There is even a little racoon family that lives in Central Park!
