We have trips booked now till the end of October , I saw 2 whales from my home just yesterday they were about 1 mile from the beach, so there are plenty of whales still in the area. join us 732.451.6003 with any questions!

You can now rent Binoculars on the boat in advance! Jersey shore whale watch guarantees whale sightings!
You are now able to rent at a great price binoculars for the day of your whale watching trip the price is very good, $5 for childrens and $8 for adults!
Whale watching with binoculars, especially from a boat, requires a lot of stability. Additionally, the distance you need to maintain from these majestic animals means that you need a long focal length with a wide, crystal clear field of view.
Most tour operators have strict guidelines to follow when approaching whales and they need to stay a certain acceptable distance away from the whales for obvious reasons.
So when you choose a pair of binoculars we need to bear a few simple things in mind. Lookout for weatherproof capabilities, weight, magnification and ease of use on a boat.
