American Princess Cruises adheres to the health and safety guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State. Your health and safety are paramount. We have taken the following measures to ensure the health and safety of our passengers and crew:
Adventure cruises run approximately 3.5 hours and are departing from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, Pier 3 (click here for directions)
This will be our 11th successful year of running these awesome adventure cruises! While our average sightings rate is 90%, in 2020 we had over a 97% sightings rate.
So if you’re interested in setting sail in search of these beautiful mammals, come hop aboard the American Princess, the original NYC Whale and Dolphin Watchers, for a UNIQUE Adventure Cruise!
The New York City Whale Watching and Dolphin Adventure Cruise departs from Pier 3 in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York (click here for directions). Looking toward the Marine Parkway Bridge, one may see a peregrine falcon diving for prey. As we approach Breezy Point jetty, we may view gannets diving for the glorified bunker bait. Dolphins may appear as walls of water off the coast of New York City. We may view hundreds of bottlenose dolphins jumping 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!” Slowly, we approach the humpback whale who has finished his first course of bunker and is jumping with excitement and joy, as if to impress the passengers aboard the American Princess. And he is a beauty; approximately 45 feet in length, weighing about 40 tons. His 20 foot pectoral fin seems to be waving to all. Will we spot his companions?
Note: We suggest bringing 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. We look forward to seeing you on another Whale Watching and Dolphin Adventure Cruise!
