EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A couple of whales put on a Fourth of July show for beachgoers in the Hamptons.

The whales jumped out of the water several times as people sat on the beach in East Hampton.

Marine biologists say whale sightings have been increasing off the coast of Long Island in recent years, and say this time of year is the most common time to see them.
