Stories from the Sea

For over a decade, Gotham Whale has recorded sightings and other information about the marine mammals returning to New York City. Thousands of hours of wildlife observations have left us with many whale tales, seal spiels, dolphin dictations, and other stories from the sea. We hope you'll enjoy getting to know the whales in our New York City Humpback Whale Catalog (NYCHWC), as well as other wildlife we encounter.
