1, 2, 3 minke whales

Good evening everyone,
We had a great trip this afternoon and it was great to get back on the water after 2 days due to weather.  We spent time today with 3 minke whales in Head Harbour Passage, and there appeared to be lots of feed in the passage as there were large groups of gulls as well.  We also made time to visit with seals, bald eagles, porpoise and Whitehorse Island (a seabird nesting site where we saw gulls, black-legged kittiwakes, cormourants and black guillemots).  We also spotted our first sooty shearwater of the season just off Whitehorse as well,

Great first week for out 2013 season!

Hello everyone, we have had a great first week for out 2013 season!  We have sighted whales on every trip as well as seals, porpoise, eagles and lots of seabirds.  I have some photos from the past week that I want to share, I hope you enjoy.

Minke whales have been seen on every trip so far this season

We saw our first fin whale of the 2013 season on June 24th, and we saw a pair of finback on June 26th.

Bald eagles are certainly around and there are a few nests in the area that are visible from the water including one on White Island with 2 eaglets.

There are lots of seabirds to see, so don't forget to bring your binoculars!

Seals are always a highlight on the trip, no matter what we always make time to stop and spend some time with seals.

Thanks for checking in and I promise to post more often now that I am back on a schedule here :)
