I Will Never Forget This Trip!
Hello Everyone, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link back from a day on the Bay of Fundy that I will never forget. There are a handful of trips over my past 7 years with Quoddy Link Marine that I will always remember and this afternoon's departure is one to add to that pile. With a call from Matt on our Scout Boat (Thank You Matty!) that he had found a humpback in the Grand Manan Chanel we made our way directly out on our 2:00 pm departure. Matt let us know that it was Mustache, a humpback whale we have become very familiar with over the past few years and when we arrived "he" was great to see, raising his tail nice and high for all of our passengers to see and then Mustache did this ....(click play on the video below)
I missed the first full breach on the video but I managed to catch the other 2 partial breaches. Everyone was so excited but "he" wasn't done, this is what happened next....(click play on the video below)
That is me you can hear crying in the background! Mustache was so close I though we were going to get wet from the splash. One of our younger passengers, Emily, told me that Mustache slapped his tail 91 times! I wasn't counting but it lasted well over 20 minutes. This was such a special trip and most certainly not something we see on a regular basis. Thank You to all of our passengers on board for being so excited and interested in everything today. Below are some photos of Mustache.
Thanks so much for checking in today. We are all getting excited about our special North Atlantic right whale trip on Saturday, don't forget to check back and see how everything turned out......or better yet come and join us, we still have a few spots left!
