Passengers aboard our Adventure Sightseeing Tour got to see the newest attraction in New York Harbor! A whale made its way up the Hudson and was spotted off the Statue of Liberty.
We watched the whale for several hours, providing a safety zone and communicating with commercial vessels to avoid potential collision.
Encountering whales is not uncommon this time of year out in the Atlantic Ocean, but rarely does one swim into the harbor.
The whale surfaced within feet of the boat, allowing us to take truly unique photos.
It's a Humpback whale and we are searching the national database to learn more about this specific animal.
