Most of us had been out on the American Princess with Gotham Whale and Captains Tom Paladino and Frank Desantis before, so we knew what to expect: a warm comfortable ride inside the cabin and an excellent viewing platform around the lower and upper decks.
Catherine Granton, the naturalist from Gotham Whale was also there to point out some interesting landmarks and history during the trip.
The wildlife people were even treated to both a Harbor Seal and Grey Seal off one of the Islands south of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.
From a photo standpoint the drab and dreary skies made it a challenge but fun was had by all and we certainly plan to schedule another trip in some warmer weather next Spring.
New York Harbor is incredibly busy even this time of year so besides the skyline there are plenty of things to keep your attention.
