Hello everyone, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine. Even though I am still in Gatineau, QC I am getting reports from my Quoddy family. Today, while on a 2 hour Nature Cruise (our whale watching season hasn't officially started yet), we sighted a couple of minke whales between Hospital and Deer Island in the West Isles. Minke whales are usually the first whales to show up in our area and are the smallest baleen whales that we see in the Bay of Fundy. Please keep in mind that "small" is a relative term as they can reach lengths of 25-30 feet and almost 20,000 lbs!
Well, that's all for now, I will keep you posted as more news arrive and I will be out on the water myself next Thursday so watch for pictures and video!
