Hello everyone, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine with a quick update of today's sightings. We decided to have a whale watch this morning instead of this afternoon so we could give our guests enough time to have their turkey dinner!! We headed right offshore this morning and we passed some finbacks on our way out but when we got there we found EKG and the young humpback that was disentangled in December of 2007 off Grand Manan (pictured below). After we spent some time with the humpbacks (and got a very close look at EKG!) we made our way back towards the islands where we stopped with 4 finback whales. Our passengers were amazed at the size and power of the finback whales, the second largest whale in the world, and the ones we were watching were at least the length of the boat at 55 feet! There was also tonnes of birds this morning and we stopped at The Spectacles where we saw 7 bald eagles!
We still have a few more trips this week;
Tuesday, October 14th-Thursday, October 16th at 1:00 pm
Friday, October 17th at 10:00 am
Sunday, October 19th at 1:00 pm
Thanks for checking in today, Cheers!
