From 1 p.m. to approximately 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through June (except 6/15/14), the ship ferries passengers out to the Atlantic Ocean as a naturalist narrates the sights and marine wildlife, including whales and dolphins. The boat launches from Riis Landing in Rockaway and boasts a galley, cash bar, and snacks.
American Princess Cruises
Tom Paladino, owner of the 95-foot American Princess, steers passengers over the Atlantic Ocean's scenic waters on many noted tours that leave the city's commotion behind, including his seal and birdwatching tour that earned a New Yorker mention. Staffed by a team of experienced captains on its luxury boats, American Princess Cruises' excursions encompass a variety of sightseeing, cruising, tours, and partying opportunities. The company's many voyages ferry passengers past scenic areas that include New York Harbor, Jamaica Bay, Long Island Sound, or the Statue of Liberty as she readies her torch for that night's show at Madison Square Garden.
Within these geographic areas, passengers cruise on tours during which it's common to spot whales and dolphins cresting the sea's surface, the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, or take in the area's flame-colored leaves in autumn.
