Oh, Fog…. – July 10, 2017

Good evening everyone, Danielle again here to pass along our July 10. 2017 sightings courtesy of Jolinne who is taking care of everything until I can be back out on the water!  THANK YOU Jolinne.

The morning departure started off by stopping with seals, spent time at White Horse Island with the nesting black-legged kittiwakes and then continued to Southern Wolf Island. Once near the island we had a few harbour porpoises and found a minke whale which is spent the rest of the morning with. On our return to Saint Andrews we slowed down around Bliss Island incase a fin whale was in the area, however there was no blow to be seen.

The afternoon departure we took Western Passage into the island. The past few days there were a few minke whale sightings in that area, however due to all the fog they weren’t easy to follow and we were fog-free that day. We spend a lot of time searching and circling around the island and going back and forth from Bliss Island to Campobello Island. We found multiple bald eagles, spent time with seals both at Casco Bay Island and on the reef, however no whales were sighted on this departure.

Bald eagle on Whitehorse Island. Eagles visit the Island not to nest but to hunt on the young gulls (or even adult gulls) and this one is waiting to ambush

Thank You to everyone who joined us today!!

Cheers,
