Great Fin Whale Sightings!

Hey all, I just wanted to give you a quick update on our sightings from today. We had finbacks on both trips, again, just off East Quoddy Head Light. On our evening departure we had a special sighting, there were 4 fin whales traveling side-by-side! Baleen whales, like fins, do not live in family groups so we don't often see them traveling together but to have 4 that were feeding and surfacing together was great. There was a 5th finback we could see blowing as well.

Thanks for checking in!

    We were out with you on the 2 pm trip and had a FABULOUS time!! We are displaced Maritimers living in Ontario and journey back "home" every summer! Our afternoon with you was one of the highlights of our trip! Our 6 year old said " Mommy, I can't wait to go back to school!!" Why??? " Because I can't wait to tell my teacher all about the whales! They were awesome!!" That says it all! We would love to come back and have highly recomended your trip to friends and family! The kids loved the touch tank too! Great day had by the whole family ~ there were 11 of us on board that day! Thanks to you all! Great job!

  2. Thank you so much for your comment Nouwens Family...it really means a lot to me. I'm happy you had such a good time and to have kids love it and want to tell their teachers...well, that's why we do what we do.
