First Finback Sighting

Hello there, it's Danielle, senior naturalist and photographer with Quoddy Link Marine. We had our first finback whale sighting today, something we are all very excited about. I wasn't able to get any pictures because I was in the office today. I will post pictures as I get them.
Here is a minke whale that we saw in Head Harbour Passage on July 3rd. Head Harbour is a popular spot to look for whales. It is a deep passage where there is a lot of upwelling, and brings the cold, nutrient-rich water to the surface and provides plenty of food for the whales.

Harbour seals are abundant in our area of the Bay of Fundy. They are incredibly dog-like in profile and are always entertaining to watch.

A rainbow appeared over the town on Canada Day (July 1st) after our 2:00pm trip. Just another beautiful day in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea.
