What a gorgeous day!

Hello everyone, it's Danielle with Quoddy back from an absolutely gorgeous day on the water. Today the Bay of Fundy looked like a pond the water was so still. We had finback and minke whales on all 3 departures today. The photo on the left is a harbour porpoise. These little cetaceans are often mistaken for dolphins but they are quite a bit smaller than the dolphins we get in our area and their dorsal fin is triangular in shape versus the sickle shape dorsal of an Atlantic white-sided dolphin. Below are 2 pics from today, the top is a fin whale and the bottom, a minke.

Thanks for checking in today! Cheers.
