Just about a week ago, we showed you the incredible video of a Long Branch lifeguard's close encounter with a humpback whale.

A day later, a humpback whale was seen in the Shrewsbury River.

Now, Thomas Lozinski of Manasquan caught some amazing footage of a whale swimming near the Squan coastline.

Lozinski estimated the whale was about 18 feet long, and came as close as about 40 feet from the beach.

I know I say this every time I see a great whale video...but I really want to get a drone. I know that my timing will never work, and I'll always end up getting to the area five minutes too late and just having footage of the ocean, so I talk myself out of getting one...but maybe one day the Varacchi Drone will fly over the Jersey Shore.
