New York, NY 10038
Step aboard the New York Water Taxi for a winter adventure in New York Harbor! 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
