A cool July day

Hey everyone, it's Danielle with Quoddy Link back from a very cool July day on the water. On our 10:00 am departure we ventured offshore with no reports of fin whales around the islands. We traveled out to Southern Wolf and on the edge of the Owen Basin but we didn't see any finbacks. We spotted a minke whale off Head Harbour Island and "he" turned out to be very co-operatve and we got some great looks.

Our afternoon trip took us off Nubble Island where we spent some time with a fin whale. At first the whale was making some big moves and staying down a long time but with a little patience we managed to get some good sightings. The photo below is from today, Whitehorse Island is in the background.

We have been seeing lots of seals on every trip and I wanted to share 2 pictures from today of some hauled-out harbour seals.

They are calling for some weather tomorrow so we will have to see what happens then. Thanks for checking in,
