About the event

Back for 2017! 90% Sightings in 2016!

Whale Watching and Dolphin Adventure Cruises are back for 2017 – our 7th year! Whales and dolphins have been spotted in the waters of Rockaway, Queens, New York!

If you’re interested in setting sail in search of these beautiful mammals, hop aboard The American Princess for a Whale Watching and Dolphin Adventure Cruise.

Join us, the original New York City Whale/Dolphin Watchers, as we head out into the Atlantic Ocean and seek out these beautiful mammals. We suggest you bring a regular camera, video camera and/or binoculars if possible. Children will be encouraged to participate in helping our crew take the official whale and dolphin count. Your photos and videos can be posted on our Facebook page.
