Jones Beach visitors get Labor Day show from jumping, spraying whales

Three whales “breached” the water off of Jones Beach State Park Monday morning in a rare sighting so close to shore, officials said. The whales, believed to be pilot whales, were spotted shortly before noon in front of the park’s Central Mall, about 700 to 1,000 yards off shore, said George Gorman, state parks deputy regional director for Long Island.
