Finbacks and some offshore fog
Hello everyone, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine back from another day on the Bay of Fundy. We had some weather to deal with today including about 15 knots of southwest winds and offshore fog! Even with the weather we did have 2 very nice trips with some great sightings with finback whales (the weather just wasn't suitable to be able to venture offshore in search of humpback whales). On each departure today we spent time with finbacks and with some patience (absolutely essential when whale watching) we got some very close looks at these large whales. On our way home we stopped at a seal haul out site and got some great looks at both harbour and grey seals. We also had some time to stop and show our passengers some local fishing and aquaculture techniques. In all we had 2 great trips today.
Take care everyone and thanks for checking in today. I'll keep posting our sightings as they come.
