If you get seasick but want to see whales, here's your chance!
A Facebook post by the NH Marine Mammal Rescue Wednesday confirms two different humpback whales and possibly 1-2 minke whales have been spotted close to shore feeding on baitfish called menhaden (pogies). The rescue group says the baitfish are numerous right now in the area, drawing whales, seals and even tuna to the shore.
The whales have been spotted feeding between Salisbury center and the southern portion of Seabrook Beach.
The marine rescue group stresses that although they are incredible to look at, viewers need to keep their distance.
"Remember, these animals are federally protected and you must keep a wide berth from them; at least 150 feet. Being in a boat, paddleboard, or kayak is no different.... keep a far distance and let them feed without being harassed. They are working hard to fatten up before migrating south!" the posts stresses.
