So sounds like they were able to make their way to the Wolves Bank on all three departures. They had multiple fin and humpback whales.

Today the wind, rain and fog kept us in the islands.
The morning departure we took Western Passage and quickly found a minke whale in the Old Sow. It was seen once and disappeared on us. We then continued on to Wilson’s Beach, to find another one, which did the same thing. Making our way along Campobello Island, we found a third minke whale which was much more co-operative.
On the afternoon departure we made our way into the Islands. Nothing larger than harbour porpoises were seen. So while making our way towards Wilson’s beach, a large fin whale surface right along side on the boat! We were able to watch it then do a series of dives before we lost it in the fog. We then spent the rest of the afternoon looking to find a minke whale, which all eluded us.
We canceled the evening departure due to the increasing foggy conditions in the Islands.
Thanks to everyone that joined us the past few days on these departures!
