A group of teachers were out on a fishing trip, just a few miles off the New London coast, when suddenly.. they spotted Humpback Whales!
One of the educators is David Bednarz, who teaches marine science at Ledyard High.
He, of course, used the experience and videos in class!
And more videos of breaching whales from a few years ago off of New Milford's coast below.
