Winter Seals and Waterbirds in New York City’s Harbor from Jan 16, – February 3, 2013 Only!

Posted on Jan 14, 2013

The New York Water Taxi offers are really fun way to enjoy nature this winter and see New York’s Harbor. Turn the trip into a fascinating experience to appreciate the changes that have taken place along the waterfront over the pasts several years with one of Discover New York and Beyond’s experienced guides and walk along the waterfront and then go on the Water Taxi!
Look for harbor seals on the rocky shores of Governors 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 Circle. Dress warmly and bring your binoculars because there will be plenty to see!
Aside from seals and waterfowl, you’ll also see breathtaking Harbor sights such as:
• The Statue of Liberty
• The Ellis Island Immigration Museum
• The Brooklyn Bridge
• Governors Island
• Verrazano Bridge
