Seal & Whale Watching

If you want to have your breath taken away on your Suffolk County vacation, sign up for a Suffolk County, Long Island whale watching cruise. Long Island is one of the top east coast whale watching destinations–you can get amazingly close to groups of large baleen and toothed whales, spot seals at play or watch seabirds, sea turtles and other marine life at home in the ocean.

The waters off of Suffolk County are great for east coast whale watching and are known as New York’s whale-watching region. Many Long Island whale-watching tours depart from historic Montauk on the tip of Long Island’s south fork. Find out how the Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island (CRESLI) works to protect endangered species. Bring your binoculars and get ready to be awed in one of the finest east coast whale watching and seal watching destinations.
