Every once in a while, locals are lucky enough to see a spectacular sight; Humpback whales breaching the waters of the Atlantic. The mammals, which can grow to be 50 feet long and weigh 40 tons, migrate yearly, traveling from northern Canada and Greenland down to the south Atlantic around the Caribbean for the winter months. That makes now a great time to spot the whales off the coast.

Since they're such large creatures, you'll have a better chance seeing one if you head to deep water. Earlier this week, passengers aboard the Mattanza Charters, based in Pirates Cove Resort and Marina in Port Salerno, went out to the 8-mile reef off Stuart and saw a Humpback having fun in the open ocean. See the video for yourself here.

Home prices will still climb but not as fast, more homes are expected to be for sale at the end of the year giving prospective buyers a greater selection, while homeowners will have more equity to borrow from.
