Another amazing day with humpbacks – August 15, 2017

Hello everyone, Danielle back with another update, this time from Jolinne and Ashley!  Thank You Ladies for keeping us all up to date!

August 15th, 2017

The morning departure we headed off into the fog to the Wolves Bank. Once we got there we spent some with a humpback mom and calf pair, Motley and her 2017 calf. These two were never diving for long or moving very far. We then moved on to a trio of humpbacks; Bungee and her 2017 calf that was joined by Ridgeline (I called this whale, “the one with the black tail”). We saw Ridgeline back in 2011! It’s always great to see whales that we haven’t seen in awhile come back to the area. On our way home, two other humpbacks surfaced near the boat, however we didn’t spend time with them.

The afternoon departure we once again headed off to the Banks. The fog seemed to be even thicker than it was in the morning, however, it did end up clearing. There were 5 fin whales; 2 pairs and a single, feeding in the area. We also spent time with a trio of humpbacks; Bungee and her 2017 calf and Ridgeline. Then there was a huge breach and I lost track of everything else… Puppet decided to breach and tail slap for quite some time. Motley and her 2017 calf were also seen in the distance.

The evenings departure report is brought to you by Ashley “Mom and calf humps, multiple other humps – breach, tail lobbing!!! A group of Fin whales really close 🙂” Another amazing trip on the Bay of Fundy!

Thanks to everyone that joined us on these departures!

Ridgeline. We saw Ridgeline back in 2011, the tail has matured a lot and was not an easy match. THANK YOU to Laurie from the Grand Manan Whale and Seabird Research Station for the help!
