Beached Whale on Amelia Island

Greetings from Amelia Island, Florida, this is Mariann Dahl from Unique Realty of Amelia. Thanks alot for stopping by the last couple of weeks to look at some of our beautiful Amelia Island real estate properties for sale.

I wanted to share this story with you. My husband and I came home the other day after playing tennis at Amelia Island Plantation and our neighbor excitedly explained there was a Humpback whale washed up on the beach. We were sad to hear the news but excited to be able to see such an incredible creature up close!

It was a juvenile weighing between 1-2 tons and over 25 feet long! No one knows what happened as yet, but Humpback whales reach their mature length of 53 feet or more around age 12. The whale will be analyzed for any abnormality and they will take tissue samples for further study back at the lab. We will let you know their findings as soon as we have any new information.
