I was in Long Beach and I saw many ships anchored off the coast, does anyone know if there is a frequency or an online way to listen to them? THANKS

You can view many ships on ship tracking websites like this one. [link]

As far as freqs, just scan the marine range with a decent antenna. I only found one feed but not sure of it boundaries. It says what it says but I would bet it picks up further.

Ships use Marine VHF for ship to ship or ship to shore. When further out to sea, they'll use HF / Single Side Band radios for more range. Or just use sat phones.

Most larger ships also usually maintain an internal system to communicate with crew members, usually in the UHF range.

Ships near NY Harbor anchored are most likey waiting for the Harbor Pilots to come out, board and guide them into NY Harbor. Ships will hail the Sandy Hook Pilot on VHF 16, 13 or 73.
