Humpback Whale Surprises Father & Son At Jersey Shore
A father and son were fishing off the Jersey shore when they were startled by a humpback whale. On Wednesday, Doug and Jack Peeler of Bensalem, Bucks County, came to Belmar, Monmouth County, to go fishing. The whale escapes and rams Zach’s boat while he takes out his phone to record his father’s catch on camera.
“Epic whale footage. Crashing into the side of our boat! ” wrote Zach when he uploaded the video to Instagram. Jack’s screams when he first spotted the whale may be heard in the video. Zach claimed that his father “wasn’t upset at all” and “couldn’t lose his fish.” Although they had spotted dolphins and sharks earlier in the day, the humpback whale gave a complete surprise.
