Humpback, Finback and Minke Whales...All Still Here!!

Hello all, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine, still whale watching and still seeing lots of whales. Today we went out in some crazy October fog but with a little help with the visibility we were able to find 2 humpback whales, EKG (left) and an unknown we also saw on October 11th. Both humpbacks were great to watch, this beautiful tail raise from EKG and the unknown whale did a few tail breaches and rolled over a few times and showed us "his" pectoral flippers (no photos of that...raining). On our way back we stopped with a few minke whales at the mouth of Head Harbour Passage and then we found a finback whale, between White and Nubble Island and we got to see a beautiful lunge feed! What an amazing much more than we could ever ask for at the middle of October. The other sightings are still great as well, there are so many bald eagles around as well as many species of seabirds. We are also seeing lots of seals, both grey (top) and harbour (bottom).

Thanks so much for checking in today, we have 3 departures left;
Friday, October 17th @ 10:00 am
Saturday, October 18th @ 2:30 pm
Sunday, October 19th @ 1:00 pm
Come and join us!! Cheers.
