Jersey Shore Whale Watch - we have the biggest boat, we can get you to where the whales are in a fun, safe, matter with plenty of social distancing in this time of COVID-19. We ask that you wear a mask while boarding; once you’re at your seat you can take it off. If you need to go to the bathroom, you need to put it back on. If you go to the front bow of the boat where the best whale watching is, please wear it. You will be able to see whales right from your seat, you don’t need to get up and move around but many people do.
Whale watching is really fun for all ages, although a two-year-old can be more work for the mom that it might be worth. Five-year-olds will love it; they see the whales and they’re really impressed and hearing them describe the whales is pretty amusing. We’ve also had seniors of all ages, in fact the mother of one of the captains came out last year twice, once alone and again with her girlfriends at 97 years old and enjoyed it so much that she came back the second time. There are plenty of safe areas for someone to just sit and enjoy the trip and see the occasional whale without having to get up and go to the front of the boat. However, if you are a senior and still want to go to the front, I have seen many seniors in their 80s moved to the front of the boat, sometimes with assistance from our crew. We want everyone to have a great safe trip, and we will do the utmost to make sure that happens.
The boat has two full-size bathrooms and a kitchen on board that sells snacks and drinks. However, because of COVID-19 they’re not cooking food currently. The boat has two levels, plenty of room to socially distance, and we do take this seriously as we want everyone to have a safe, enjoyable experience.
