American Princess Cruises presents an Offshore Extended Day Whale Watch Adventure Cruise

Join us on this whale exploration setting out into the offshore waters of New York and possibly out to the Hudson Canyon on this extended day trip in search of whales, dolphin, and pelagic birds. This is an adventure cruise for the ultimate whale enthusiast. We will be sailing from our home port of Riis Landing in Rockaway, Queens.

Boarding time begins at 5:00am, sailing time is 5:30am sharp, returning at approximately 8:00pm (an hour before or after is possible).  There will be a continental breakfast at boarding.

Let’s see what the deep blue sea has for us to view. We are in search of various giant whales but will also keep our eyes out for all marine life and birds. Sightings are not guaranteed.  Because this is an extended, offshore Whale Watch Trip, if you have a tendency to get seasick, please be sure to implement best seasickness preventive measures.

The ticket price for this trip is $185 per person, reservations are required and may be made below.
