Hi, it’s Danielle again, senior naturalist with Quoddy Link Marine. I just wanted to let you know we saw our FIRST WHALE on June 19th. It was a minke whale sighted off East Quoddy Head Light, on the northern tip of Campobello Island. Minke whales are usually the first species of whale to arrive in our part of the Bay of Fundy. They are the smallest baleen whale we have here, averaging around 25 feet.
The minke was sighted on a nature cruise. Even though it is early to see whales consistently in our area there is still lots of wildlife out there in the Fundy Isles. We have been doing many chartered nature cruises taking us out into the Bay of Fundy. There are lots of harbour seals and bald eagles around too see, as well as harbour porpoise and lots and lots of beautiful scenery.
