Hello all, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine. We had another great fall day with humpback whales on both trips and 3 large fin whales on our afternoon departure. Our morning charter took us below where we thought we needed to be to find whales on the flood tide but we found 3 humpback whales; Cork, EKG (below) and our unknown from the other day, who still didn't raise his tail! While we made our way to FDR's summer home on Campobello Island, NB we sighted many mature bald eagles along the shoreline. Our afternoon trip we made our way to the Grand Manan Channel. With reports of 3 fin whales travelling together and calmer seas we headed directly out and when we arrived we found not only the fin whales but Mustache, a male (most likely due to markings on his belly) juvenile humpback! We got some great looks at Mustache before we had to start making our way back to St. Andrews. We made some time on the way home to stop and see a group of harbour seals hauled out on one of their favorite reefs.
Thanks for checking in today, the forecast doesn't sound great for tomorrow but we never know what the weather man will bring us!
