In celebration of Riverkeeper’s efforts to make the Hudson River clean and healthy enough to support a diverse range of species – from oysters to whales – join us for our maiden whale watching voyage! In this four-hour cruise, we’ll seek out some of the water’s most majestic creatures – and welcome them back!

For many years, whales have been a rare sight in and around New York Harbor. But the tireless efforts put forth by Riverkeeper and our partner environmental groups are yielding signs of hope for the Hudson River Estuary and surrounding waters, inspiring us to continue our work to heal the ecosystem and restore the abundance of life. Come experience the fruits of Riverkeeper’s efforts to protect the Hudson River and the ecosystems it serves!

Illuminating educational commentary will be provided throughout the cruise by Riverkeeper’s habitat restoration team and experts from Gotham Whale, New York City’s own whale research and advocacy organization.
