In the early evening, the setting sun was lighting up whale spouts — so many it was hard to count!
I don't know if these Humpback Whales will stay around, but it will be worth checking during the next few days.
Some of the spouts were far offshore, but many were within a half mile (and some even closer) to shore.
If you're looking for a way to cool off during the current heat wave, a trip to the coast to watch for whales might not be a bad option!
