Saturday Afternoon Finbacks and More – 19/11/22

Temperature was to stay in the low 40’s but had the opportunity to go whale watching!

Not a hard decision as this is whale migration season and you truly never know what you may see.

Nice size group of people on the trip, allowing everyone to stay in the heated cabin if they so wished or they could be outside. From Belmar we headed south towards Seaside and we found not one but 2 Finback whales and a humpback whale.

Finback whales are huge:, 60-80 feet and can weigh 100,000 pounds! The other thing is they can be very fast and these 2 whales were moving around and it was difficult to keep an eye on them.

Briefly a humpback whale seemed to appear out of no where and then dove and we could not spot him again.

At that point it was time to return home but before that we were treated to a beautiful sunset.

We had newly weds as well as a couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. Whale watching off of the Jersey Shore has become a bucket list for many people. So glad I had the opportunity to be on this trip!
