Lunge feeding minke whales and great finback sightings

Hello everyone, I just wanted to give you a quick update on our sightings for the past few days. We have had some great sightings of finbacks, last night we had 5 individuals! The whales have been very consistent which helps with some of the weather. This afternoon we had a minke whale lunge feed many times, with so much was fantastic! I did get some video (it's not great, I never knew where he was going to feed) and I will post it as soon as I can. The photo below was taken by Jolinne...again, GREAT JOB

The weather has not been appropriate for us to search offshore for humpbacks for the past few days, very heavy haze from the hot weather and some strong SW winds yesterday. We are keeping in contact with the Grand Manan Ferry and hopefully we will be able to check off the Wolves soon to see if we can find the humpback we saw the other day. There is no word yet as to the ID of the young whale but I will post as soon as I hear.

Thanks for checking in,
