NYC Audubon Summer EcoCruise-Brother Islands - New York Water Taxi
June 02, 2013 - New York

See some of the 3,000 gorgeous herons that fly from the South to nest on small islands in New York Harbor. Hosted by Audubon naturalists, this 90-minute cruise will take you "up close and personal" to see these majestic birds. Cruise under famous city bridges and past renowned monuments, take in views of the city's skyline and get to know some of its lesser-known aviary residents. You'll learn about the ecology of the harbor and understand why the harbor islands have become home to thousands of birds in the last few decades. Our fleet of vessels are community-conscious with low-emission engines, low-wake hulls and hospital-grade mufflers that honor our New York waterways.
