T/V Shellerina was right where that whale was a few weeks ago on Sunday August 6, 2017 in about 20 feet of water!
It was part of a 48 mile trip from Shinneck Inlet to Fire Island Inlet. We were in close to stay in the flat protected waters off the beach, as the wind was out of the north that day.
That day, we saw large fields of Bunker, bait fish, schooling off the beach. Impressive. We were surprised there weren’t more sea birds there having their fill.
It is very cool to know there could be whales in that close feeding on the schools we saw!
