It’s been a few day since I was out on the water!
The start of the Memotial Day weekend and beginning of a staycation! Some frequent passengers as well as brand new passengers to Jersey Girl were all on board and ready for an adventure. Hopes were high as reports of whales in Belmar, Spring Lake, Manasquan and Avon were frequent the past 3 days. We searched, and I think most of the passengers were carefully watching for whales and dolphins. Found some dolphins but wanted to continue on to find the whales. Eventually headed north towards Long Branch and there was a humpback whale! Funny as the whale kept heading into shore. The whales are coming in close because plenty of baitfish are in close to shore.
In addition to this humpback whale, there was another whale in the distance, saw Osprey on their nest, osprey catch and fly off with fish, half moon, black crowned night heron and Canada geese with 2 babies. Unfortunately we also saw a balloon floating on the water which could easily be swallowed by a whale gulping down fish! There were a couple of birthday celebrations on board today. That is always special
