Whales spotted close to Rockaway

From CBS New York:

Humpback whales have been spotted just a few hundred yards from the Queens shoreline, CBS 2′s Tamara Leitner reported.

Mike Leonard, his brother and his father were boating off the Rockaways on Friday when they saw four whales, they said.

“It was literally like five feet away,” Leonard said. “It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen in life. It was pretty cool actually.

“The big 40-footer went underneath our boat, and our boat rocked a little bit.”

Dennis Suslak said he has seen whales from his fishing spot in the Rockaways almost every day for the past two weeks.

They were just off Jones Beach about a week ago,feeding on bunkers.The boat traffic by the Rockaways tends to be a bit lighter.That could explain it.
