Hello everyone. The past 2 days have brought absolutely gorgeous weather and lots of finback whales. These whales are continuing to feed not too far from St. Andrews (in previous years we have had to go over 16 miles to see the larger whales like finbacks). To the left you can see a large ball of herring, the main food source for finbacks in our part of the Bay of Fundy right now (they also feed on krill here). This “bait ball” was right at the surface and there were herring and greater black back gulls feeding like crazy. We were able to pick up some of the small fish to show our passengers and I even fed some of the crabs in our Touch Tank!
The weather is suppose to be nice tomorrow, hopefully our Scout Boat will be able to get out and help us search for humpbacks (we did have a look today in Grand Manan Channel…no humpbacks but a GREAT sighting with a pair of finback whales and NO boat traffic). Thanks for checking in and I will keep you posted tomorrow.
