Greeting From Asbury Park, and the 2 humpback whales put on quite a show
How do you follow an incredible whale watching day like yesterday? By having
one just as incredible ! Okay, maybe slightly less incredible but what a great day. Weather was perfect and the seas fairly calm for this adventure. We headed back to a similar location as yesterday but not as far north as Long Branch. There was a report earlier that 2, whales were in the area. We searched but did not spot anything. We started heading further East when we saw a spout, actually two! Unbelievable, we found 2 of the three whales that we saw yesterday. At times they were just “hanging out” but they followed that with some lunge feeding behavior and diving while showing their flukes. One even breached infront of our boat further out. These were whales # 11 and 86. Jerry 2 days in a row! He is definitely a fan favorite. He was seen closer to NYC earlier in the week so he is moving south, maybe he wants to check out what Belmar has to offer? It was another great group of adventurers on the boat, including those celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries. We saw Ospreys, Black Crowned Night Herons, Great Egret, and a Great Shearwater.
Today again we had people who have been to Alaska to see whales say they never knew whales were here! They walk away impressed with what they see here at the Jersey Shore.
New Jersey best whale watching tour company, we guarantee you will see a whale.
