At 5:30 the winds had almost completely dropped out and the tide was on the flood so John, our captain and owner, decided to make the run offshore in search of humpback whales. When we arrived we found Cork, a 5-year old female humpback as well as 5-6 finback whales.
We spent some time with Cork while she was lunge feeding, coming to the surface with her mouth closing, water pouring out between her baleen plates and her ventral grooves were fully extended. It was awesome! The photo below was one of her surfaces very close to the boat, you can see the water pouring out of the side of her mouth.
Thanks so much for checking in with us today. It looks like the weather should be great tomorrow. Come down to St. Andrews and experience the Bay of Fundy....Catamaran Style.
