The Most World’s Most Majestic Mammal Makes a Surprise Appearance on the Jersey Shore! WOW!

Heading down to LBI this summer? Keep your eyes peeled for the world’s most majestic creature: whales. I’ve see dolphins frolicking, seals sun bathing and oversized Northern Gannets resting on the beach. But nothing can top seeing a whales while sitting lazily on the shore in your beach chair. Just a few weeks ago, I spotted a few whales from the beach while on LBI. At first, I thought I was just seeing things, but then the whales crested and spouted water. After reading up a bit, it turns out that they were probably baby humpbacks. I wished I had caught the moment on video or snapped a photo in time.

Chatham rising senior Luke Haley was lucky enough to capture footage while he was filming dolphins from his boat in LBI. Out of nowhere,  a couple of humpback whales popped up and surprised him–right next to his boat! For me, it would have been a little too close for comfort! Check it out on Luke’s youtube video.
