There's been another Long Island whale sighting, this time off the South Shore.

Two whales feeding on sand eels approached a boat with their mouths wide open - floating on their backs.

It happened about 30 miles off Shinnecock.

The viewer who shot the video says there were about a dozen whales feeding in the area at the time.
