Hello everyone, I hope your summer has been well…..I have NO IDEA how it is already September!
Our past 3 days have been filled with wonderful “end of summer” weather….calm seas and clear skies….and they have also been filled with whales! We saw a new humpback yesterday (we saw her today as well) and it’s Sonogram, the 2004 female calf of Peedee. We also saw Sonogram in 2006, 2009 and 2010. We have also seen Lyrids and the 2009 calf of Siphon in the past few days. Our humpback sightings have mostly been offshore (aside from one or 2) past the Wolves or around the Owen Basin so our trips have been averaging around 3.5 hours but it is SO worth it.
Here are some photos of Sonogram, in the top photo you can see her long white pectoral flippers.
I also wanted to share this photo of Siphon’s 2009 calf getting her picture taken by a passenger on the Quoddy Link
We have also had some fantastic fin whale sightings, most of them off towards the Wolves but there was a pair off Bliss Island this afternoon. Here are a few photos of some finback whales.
Yesterday we got a close look at a couple of puffins offshore…..everyone loves a puffin!
Thanks so much for checking in…..have a GREAT long weekend,
