We had a gorgeous day on the ocean today. We found over 100 dolphins that were swimming all around the boat and jumping up into the air. They were incredibly active and gave us a spectacular show! After enjoying the wild dolphin show, we headed north to the top of Sandy Hook. On our journey we found many seabirds including Wilson’s Storm-Petrel. We had an incredible view of the NYC skyline, but we did not find any whales. They are wild animals and we never know exactly where they will be. It was a 20 mile round trip looking for whales, but no luck today. Even though we didn’t find any whales today, everyone still had a great time. The ocean water was beautiful, the cool air was refreshing and the dolphins were so much fun to watch. No one was disappointed, especially since all passengers receive a free return trip from Jersey Shore Whale Watch. We look forward to welcoming them back again this season at no charge. We look forward to welcoming you, as well! It’s a great activity for a group of friends or for a fun family outing. All our naturalists are experts in the field and love sharing their knowledge of humpback whales, dolphins and other marine life we see on our cruises. We have an air conditioned cabin, large upper deck, snack bar and plenty of fresh ocean air to breathe! Feel free to bring your own coolers and drinks (adult drinks are allowed) and snacks as well. Don’t wait any longer! Book your trip with us today, we promise you will have a great time!!
Oceanites oceanicus Despite its small size and seemingly weak flight, this bird is at home on the roughest of seas, flying in the troughs of the waves during gales. It also travels huge distances — from the Antarctic to the edge of the Arctic. Although it nests only in far southern oceans, Wilson’s Storm-Petrel is often the most common seabird off the Atlantic Coast of the United States.we find these birds following whales all the time.

They breathe using their lungs and blowhole and have an amazing capacity for holding their breath. Whales have been known to remain underwater for as long as 45 minutes. Since they must breathe on their own, you might wonder how whales sleep at night.We usally see them underwater for about 5 mins time but they can be under much longer.
