This is a hint we aren’t ruler of the seas.
A humpback whale ended an excursion by two occupants of a small boat off Seaside Park on the Jersey Shore yesterday. Witnesses say the whale breached the small boat several times, tipping it over. The incident didn’t happen far from shore. Both people made it back to the beach safely.
The director of the Brigantine-based Marine Mammal Stranding Center explained the whale’s actions this way: “The whale did what whales usually do — they’re looking for food, and they don’t pay attention.”
