Whale watchers have fanned out across the east coast of the state in search of right whales and their young this winter but a pair of a different species of whale was spotted this week. Aerial crews from the Marineland Right Whale Project spotted a humpback whale Monday about two miles off the coast near the Volusia and Flagler County line. It was in the area of Highbridge Road. A day later the crews got a picture of a second humpback about a half mile from shore off Flagler Beach. Spotters believe they are two separate whales because of the coloring. The crews in the airplane also reported seeing more than 100 loggerhead and 60 leatherback sea turtles in the water.
