4 humpback whales and calm seas!

Hello there, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine. What a great day for whale watching! There was barely a breath of wind in the Grand Manan Channel when we arrived looking for humpback whales. We first found our "Unknown" and quickly saw 3 more blows a bit further south. When we made our way over we were pleased to see Cork, Parachute (upper right) and Hobo! With close approaches from all 4 whales it was a fantastic afternoon. We also spent some time with a minke whale in amongst the islands on our way back to St. Andrews. Below are the dorsal fins of the 4 humpback whales we saw today. Not only is the pigmentation on the underside of the tail of humpback whales unique but so is the dorsal fin.

I just want to take this opportunity to say hello to a very loyal reader of my blog, Matthew Smith. Thanks so much for reading Matthew and we'll see you next year!
Thanks for checking in, they are calling for some serious winds tomorrow but I will keep you all posted.
