There is a humpback whale that has been spotted in distress in the Raritan bay and the Coast Guard wants boaters to proceed with caution.

The whale was first spotted this past Saturday entangled in material in the water but unfortunately the Coast Guard has not been able to track down the Whale since.

A 29-foot boar rescue boat crew from Coast Guard Station Sandy Hook and a New Jersey Sate Police Vessel have enforced a safety zone to surround the whale with hopes of relocating him safely and to prevent other boats getting too close.

Keep a close eye because if you do spot the whale, stay at least 100 years away but contact the coast guard or the NOAA Fisheries' Marine Mammal Stranding and Entanglement Hotline at 866-755-0NOAA.
