Whale report in 1 word: WOW!
Just kidding but it does say what a spectacular day it was! We headed out of the inlet going south as that is we’re the reports of whales were coming in from. Earlier in the morning, people were posting pictures of whales lunge feeding not far from the beach in Lavallette. South we went, past where we saw the whale yesterday. Off of Seaside we spotted a whale and then a second whale. Of course they were on opposite sides of the boat. But as we watched, we came across 3 whales swimming together. It was simply beautiful as we got to see all of their tails several times. It looked as if the whales were diving and raising their tails in slow motion. It was so beautiful and calm. Besides the usual ohs and from the passengers, people were hugging each other, overcome with what they had just seen. The Captain gave us an extra 1/2 hour to be out since it took a long time to travel down to Seaside. There were 2 more whales in the distance but no time to check them out. We left the whales, although we didn’t want to, and headed back home. We got to see an almost full moon rise and a beautiful sunset. Words don’t do it justice; it was a spectacular day. If you were there, you know what I mean.
