Did you know that some Whale SENSE companies run other fun trips in the whale off-season? For example, American Princess Cruises out of Queens, NY is currently offering seal and bird watching trips. Bundle up and check them out!
Today is "#GivingTuesday" a day often described as a Global Day of Giving.
Gotham Whale (on the American Princess Cruises) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and is run on donations from our supporters…You!
It takes year round hard work from our all-volunteer group along with support by way of donations from the public. So we can document and protect Marine Mammals here in the New York Bight – NYC Waters specifically. We are not just about protecting the Marine Mammals alone but the food they forage for and the waters they live in. It’s a daily fight but the reward is tremendous!
A donation from you helps us with this fight.
A few ways you can help NYC Whales and Dolphins via Gotham Whale:
A donation directly to GW via PayPal
https://gothamwhale.org/donations/
Buy something from GW’s online Bonfire store at https://www.bonfire.com/support-gotham-whale/

Snail Mail: Make a check out to Gotham Whale and mail to: 10 Bay Street Landing, Suite A5G, Staten Island, NY 10301
Have you been on a Whale SENSE whale or dolphin watching trip in the Atlantic this year? You can help your company meet their program requirements by filling out a brief survey about your experience. 5 minutes of your time is all we need - you'll have our immense gratitude in return! 😁🙌

First time out Whale watching and very exciting. Thank you for a great day.
The Hudson Canyon “overnight trip” Seafari info.
The American Princess Cruises Captain's are doing an overnight run offshore to the Hudson Canyon. The AP pushes off the dock on the night of August 22 at 10pm (945pm if everyone’s on the boat). The AP will arrive at the Hudson Canyon around Sunrise on Monday August 23. We will have all day on the Canyon waters to observe many different whales, offshore dolphins, turtles, sharks, and an amazing number of different Pelagic birds. We return the night of Monday August 23 at approximately 6pm.
The captains have set a limit on the passenger count for this trip. The AP will not be crowded, plenty of room for all to move around and observe whatever we encounter. Inside the AP cabin there are many cushioned spots to sleep comfortably. It is advised that you bring your sleeping bag or bean bag chairs and grab a spot inside or outside under the stars if that works for you.
Passengers will board in the order in which their booking was received.
The AP has a small galley and is stocked with beer, wine and spirits, snacks (cookies, coffee cakes, chips), soda, water, coffee and tea. You are encouraged to bring what you will be eating and drinking on this trip. Small coolers only are welcome.
Do not wait to see what the weather and ocean condition are going to be like before you book, you might just be shut out. Book the trip here https://americanprincesscruises.com/.../hudson-canyon.../

Interesting Humback Whale fact. Did you know Humpback Whales are color blind?

Let's talk about color! Did you know that Humpback whales are color blind? 👀 Most colors in the ocean appear blue or green because those light waves penetrate deeper into the ocean. Humpbacks don’t need to worry about colors though, as they are able to identify different contrasts instead.

Big schools of fish or krill appear as dark masses on a light background (water), so whales can locate their food with ease. However, scientists think humpbacks use other senses to find prey since feeding where light is limited would be difficult for a whale that only relied on contrast vision!
