A whale of a family affair today!
What an incredible, unique day we had!! We headed north past Asbury , Long Branch and Sandy Hook towards the New York Harbor. Great views of the NYC skyline! We passed dolphins on the way which is always fun, but it didn’t prepare us for what we were about to see. Just past Sandy Hook we came upon two whales, but not the usual juvenile males we see. This duo was actually a mother whale and her calf!! It was so amazing to watch the mother and baby surface side by side! The mother whale was teaching her calf how to lunge feed! It was such a special thing to witness. Truly once on a lifetime experience! As a matter of fact, while seeing whales off the Jersey Shore is common, seeing a mother and calf in these waters is pretty rare. Through our partnership with Gotham Whale we hope to identify this mother whale and learn more about her and her travels. We had perfect weather, perfect ocean conditions and an amazing experience watching this family of whales! This family was spotted earlier this week but we don’t know how long they will be staying around. Don’t wait any longer to book your trip!! Bring your family, bring your friends, whale watching is something everyone enjoys! We promise you will have a great time and we also guarantee you’ll see a whale or you come back for free!
Don’t miss out, book your trip today!
