OK, I REALLY do NOT want this season to end!  We had another fantastic day on the water this afternoon.  Matt decided to take us offshore to search for humpbacks (we even passed a large finback whale between The Horse and Head Harbour Light).  We made our way out and Matt saw a tail go down....we slowly went forward, stopped and waited....and then to our left a right whale popped up!  We ended up with at least 2 right whales in the area....maybe 3, we will have to see what the researchers say.  We tried to make sure our passengers knew how special this was...to see a north Atlantic right whale, the most endangered of all the large whales with an estimated world wide population of ~470 individuals!  It was an amazing trip, yet again!  AND, we also saw a minke whale in Head Harbour Passage on our way back home

Here are some pictures from today

I know it's blurry but hoped it may help with ID

Thanks so much for checking in, we only have a few days left on the water.  To check the times of our departures and availability please call 506-529-2600/1-877-688-2600.  The trips are very weather dependent as this time of the season the winds play a HUGE factor.

Cheers and THANK YOU to everyone who joined us today......Gracias, Danke Schoen and Merci Beaucoup!
