Our afternoon departure took us to a similar area, inshore, where we spent some time with finback whales.
Our evening trip was a special one. With a call from the Grand Manan ferry that they were seeing humpbacks in their track we headed offshore to see what we could find. It was a little choppy but we had eager passengers and when we arrived we found Cork, a 5 year-old female humpback that we know quite well at Quoddy. While we were waiting for Cork to resurface we saw a finback whale breach about a 1/2 mile away, not once but 4 times! Finback whales are not known to breach, just like they are not known to raise their tails. Below is a photo I captured, I know it's a little blurry but I am still happy, it's the first time I have seen a fin whale breach in my 6 years with Quoddy.
Thanks for checking in with us today, I hope tomorrow is just as good.
