I often get asked “when is the best time to go whale watching in New Jersey “ the answer is right now.
The whales are plentiful and are staying close to shore,
plenty of food for them.
Friday reports was just like every other day this week.We saw hundreds of dolphins and multiple Humpback whales along the coastline of Monmouth County New Jersey.

Went whale watching and saw lots of dolphins and hung out with 2 whales. Saw whale 131 again and another whale (242?) I forgot. Both had been entrapped in fishing gear and are now doing fine. You can see the scars on the side of the body of a propellers. Also both have abnormal tails and one is missing part of its dorsal fins. So beautiful, so relaxing, so much fun! They fished a helium balloon out of the ocean. Please, it you have a helium balloon, dispose of it safely, do not release them. If they fly off, more then likely, they will wind up in the ocean and maybe these whales or other sea creatures will eat it. Not good!
It has been a bountiful summer for bunker in the waters off New Jersey , and for local whale spotters. Bunker, a favorite food of many larger predators, including whales, are enjoying another year in a 15 long recovery.
