Lots of Minkes today...

Good evening everyone...we had 2 trips today and they were filled with some wonderful people.

We spent our morning in the Islands with a few minke whales and lots of birds all feeding on herring and krill.  We did take a run towards the Grand Manan Channel looking for fins or maybe humpbacks but no luck.

Here are some pics from this mornings trip.

In the afternoon we saw at least 5 minke whales in Head Harbour Passage including Slice.  We then made our way over towards Bliss and found 2 fin whales.  They were not being that easy to watch but with some time we did get some good looks at them.

Thanks for checking in today,

  1. Nice shot of the Bounty. Gotta love those seals. Do they have a special eye lid for swimming? Sometimes their eyes look clouded.
    Thanks for the post.
