Seastreak is so much more than just a ferry company! This summer, we are offering a variety of summer activities for you and your family to enjoy on and near the water.
Whale watching from NYC!
New in 2021, Seastreak is offering Whale Watching trips departing directly from Manhattan! Imagine being just feet away from one of the world s largest mammals in its natural habitat! Onboard our Whale Watching Cruise, you may see humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pelagic birds, sea turtles, and many other species. Our NYC departure docks are conveniently located 30 minutes away from the tip of Sandy Hook, one of the best locations for spotting whales in the New York bight. The cruise will begin with a trip out of historic NY Harbor. Passengers will pass iconic landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, Staten Island and Fort Hamilton. Then the route will continue under the Verrazano Bridge and into the Atlantic Ocean. Bring your family aboard and make some memories that will last a lifetime! Our boats are designed to provide passengers with comfort. Luxury seating, ADA accessibility, fully stocked bars, and TV monitors displaying educational content are a few of the amenities found aboard. Each jet-powered vessel contains three decks. The top deck is outdoor and offers 360 degree ocean views. Seastreak is a proud member of Whale SENSE, a voluntary education and recognition program that recognizes companies committed to responsible whale watching practices.
Have a beach day at Sandy Hook!
Not only are Sandy Hook beaches some of New Jersey s best, they re also the closest to New York City when you take a Seastreak ferry from E. 35th Street or the Battery Maritime Building. Have fun in the surf and sun at Sandy Hook Beach in the Gateway National Park, with lifeguards, snack bars, and restrooms. There are parks, fishing, bike paths, and historic lighthouses on Sandy Hook as well! Our ferry service runs daily, with several trips per day, throughout the beach season and will get you to and from Sandy Hook Beach and New York City in just 45 minutes. Nearby Highlands and down the coast, are restaurants, family activities, nightlife, and great places to stay. However you plan your trip, we ll take care of getting you there and back.
