This is a must do in NY. Whales and dolphins, educational information, great crew who are friendly, helpful and accommodating. While sightings are not guaranteed, my two trips this year, in August and September 2019, did not disappoint!! Easy access right over the bridge, ample parking, a great day!

The tour on 8/17/19 was amazing! The crew on the tour did a wonderful job calling everyone's attention to the different sightings; the naturalist provided detailed information that helped educate everyone. Such a great day! Highly recommend this.
