CRESLI Seal Cruises


The Viking Fleet and CRESLI are teaming up for some wonderful winter and spring Seal watching tours! Hop aboard the fast and luxurious 125 foot Viking Superstar for a ride to the pristine areas of Plum Island, Great Gull Island, and Little Gull Island for breathtaking views of Harbor Seals, Grey Seals, and perhaps harp and hooded seals too. Every trip will be narrated by a professional naturalist. The Viking Superstar is equipped with a heated cabin and a fully stocked galley, as well as a terrific covered outside top deck for optimal viewing of these majestic mammals. This is a fun activity to beat the winter blues and learn about these animals with the whole family.

The dates for these trips will be Sat Jan 13, Sat Jan 27, Sat Feb 3, Sun March 18, Sat April 21, Sat May 5, and Sat May 12. All trips will depart from our Montauk location at 1PM and return at 4PM. The fare is $40 for adults and $25 for children (5-12years) Kids under 5 are free!
