Sandy Hook Bay and the greater NY/NJ Bight are well-known for their abundance of diverse wildlife. Whales, rays, and seas turtles populate these waters during the summer months, but winter is the best time to see seals and migratory waterfowl! Join The Littoral Society naturalists on a Seal and Bird Eco-Cruise aboard the Seastreak Ferry to explore the area and learn more about the incredible history, geography, and ecology of this unique environment.
For 61 years, the American Littoral Society has cared for the coast and promoted the study and conservation of marine life and habitat. Our Eco-Cruise follows all efforts to protect marine mammals under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972. We believe it is imperative to give the wildlife around Sandy Hook the courtesy and respect they deserve. Please join us as we safely gaze upon wildlife in their natural habitat from a proper distance.
The cruise leaves out of the highlands at 12:15 pm and returns at roughly 3:15 pm.
