Hey everyone, today was our second to last whale watch of the 2011 season and we had a fantastic afternoon on the Bay of Fundy. We got close looks at 3 humpbacks to be able to get an ID but there were more blows to be seen further to the East. We also saw 5 breaches…all at a distance….but if you were looking in the right direction you would have been able to see the entire body of a humpback completely out of the water!
The 3 humpbacks we got IDs on today were the 2009 calf of Siphon, the 2008 calf of Tether and Darjeeling, Darjeeling is new to us at Quoddy Link and I am trying to find out some more info on this whale.
UPDATE: Darjeeling is the 2001 calf of Scylla and this is the first season this 10 year old has been recorded in the Bay of Fundy.
