Double Header Thursday!
We left the scorching hot dock for the cool refreshing ocean on our search for humpback whales. We headed south out of the river passing Belmar, Spring Lake, Point Pleasant, Bay Head and Mantoloking. We were close to shore the entire time so everyone got to enjoy the scenic views of all these beautiful beach towns. The cool ocean air never felt more refreshing than it did today! We were just off of Lavallette when we spotted our first humpback whale. While all the passengers were ooohing and ahhhhing the first whale, a second whale emerged at the back of the boat. We had two humpbacks!! One of the whales gave us some great tail shots and our naturalist, Danielle, was able to identify it as whale number 172 who was first spotted in our area two years ago. Passengers on both sides of the boat were able to get great views of these whales. You could hear the kids screaming with delight every time the whales surfaced. Everyone was so excited to actually see humpback whales in the wild! It was a very happy day out on the ocean. Everyone was buying our Jersey Shore Whale Watch t-shirts to take home as a reminder of the great time they had with us today! They left with memories to last a lifetime and stories to tell their friends when they go back to school. We see more and more humpbacks as we enter into the fall season so it’s not too late for you to join us. There is no better place to be on a hot summer day than out on the cool ocean watching humpback whales! We have an upper and lower deck and an air conditioned cabin. You can bring your own snacks and drinks including adult beverages or you can purchase drinks and snacks from our galley. Our trips are family friendly fun for the entire family! Don’t wait any longer, book your trip with us today! We promise you a great time and guarantee you’ll see a whale or you come back for free. It’s a win-win!
