The first cruise out for the American Princess with Gotham Whale was a success! We stated out with a overcast day with light winds. Shoved off from Riis Landing and as we rode over to swinburne island we came upon a sight (1st time for me) seen here in Lower NY Harbor... Harbour Porpoise, two of them. They were right off the Coney Island Parachute Jump. We stayed for a few minutes with them and went on to Swinburne where we met up with about 80-100 Seals. Lots of Birds, Seals a few Porpoises and a great view, I say it was a great start to the season!
