The urban environment, especially the rich waterways of New York Harbor, are teaming with wildlife and ecological history.

“Embarking on an Urban Naturalist Tour aboard the Yacht Manhattan during peak fall foliage was an experience that transcended the ordinary. Led by the exceptionally knowledgeable Gabriel Willow, the journey through New York City’s waterways was nothing short of mesmerizing. From the moment Gabriel Willow began his narration, it was evident that we were in for an extraordinary adventure. His passion for the natural world was palpable, and his expertise was immediately apparent as he effortlessly weaved tales of the city’s wildlife amidst the urban landscape. One of the most captivating moments was learning about the remarkable diving abilities of double-breasted cormorants, which Gabriel informed us can plunge to depths of up to 25 feet in pursuit of prey. As we glided along the shimmering waters, our attentive host pointed out various landmarks and hidden gems, each accompanied by fascinating insights into their ecological significance. However, the highlight of the tour came when a majestic bald eagle soared into view, its presence a testament to the resilience of nature even in the heart of the bustling metropolis. By the tour’s end, I found myself already planning to return with visiting family next fall, eager to share this incredible journey with them. Thanks to Gabriel Willow’s expertise and enthusiasm, the Urban Naturalist Tour aboard the Yacht Manhattan surpassed all expectations, leaving an indelible mark on our hearts and minds.” ~Born and Raised New Yorker
