Four for Four!
Another amazing day with Jersey Shore Whale Watching! We never know what we will encounter or how the trip will go and this trip was no exception. We headed north to where our sightings have been but didn’t find anything. We traveled even further north past Sandy Hook but could not find our whales. We did have amazing views of the NYC skyline and the Sandy Hook Lighthouse and National Park. We finally had to start heading back to Belmar, but we all kept looking out for signs of whales. Just when we thought we weren’t going to find any, Bill suddenly yelled out “WHALE!!” and sure enough the huge splash that he saw was indeed a whale! The whale made a few more huge splashes with his tail as we were carefully approaching where he was. We got great views of
its dorsal fin and tail and we are excited to announce that it is another new whale to add to our catalogue! Four days out and four new whales spotted! Amazing! This whale has a very unique white marking on its dorsal fin that looks like the script letter “N” so we named this whale Neptune.
Neptune was a lot of fun to watch and gave us lots of chances to take pictures of him including a few great tail shots. Since it took us longer to find the whale today, Captain Alan gave us some extra time so that everyone had a chance to see the whale and get plenty of photos and videos. It was another beautiful day on the ocean, we got to see a humpback whale and everyone left very happy! We are booking trips now so don’t miss out- get your tickets today. We also sell gift certificates. Mother’s Day is coming up, why not give her a gift she will never forget. Jersey Shore Whale Watching is great family fun for everyone. We look forward to seeing you on the boat!
