3 days with fins

Hello, it's Danielle with Quoddy again. We have had 3 great days now seeing finback whales on each and every trip out! On some departures it does take some patience, but patience and the willingness to keep your eyes on the water are 2 of the most important things you can bring whale watching (and warm clothes!). Not only have we been seeing finbacks but also minke whales, LOTS of seals and harbour porpoise and some more bird life is starting to show up in our part of the Bay of Fundy. We have identified arctic terns and Bonaparte's Gulls as well we saw a juvenile great cormorant on Whitehorse a few days ago. We did take a long run offshore yesterday to make sure we weren't missing out on any other whales out there. Keep checking as I am eagerly awaiting to see who will be our first humpback whale of the season (humpbacks typically show up in our part of the Bay of Fundy by mid to late August but each season is different and when the weather is good we often go searching 'cause you never know what's out there unless you look!).
Thanks for checking in today. Cheers!
