Hello everyone, the weather co-operated today and we were able to get back out on the water with a small cruise ship group who were down from Saint John. We took them straight off towards South Wolf where we found a fin whale and 3 humpbacks; Cork, Ibex and Wheat. Just as we were about to leave Cork popped up beside the boat and we had an amazing close encounter with her, she checked us out and circled the boat before moving on her way, I simply ADORE that whale!
The large fin whale we saw with the humpbacks
Wheat, born in 2007 to Sickle
Ibex, born in 1988 to Petrel
And Cork, born in 2002 to Mica, I have seen her every season since 2004 and have I mentioned I adore her.
Thanks for staying in touch this season, I will try and put together an “End of Season” post soon.
Take Care everyone, stay in touch!
Thanks, Danielle, for a great season of posts. You've probably mentioned it before, but do you know why Cork is called Cork?
Hi Mike, Cork is called Cork because on the right hand side of her fluke there is a black mark that looks like the profile of a wine cork (or a cartoon drawing of a mushroom cap). GREAT question, btw 🙂
Danielle, my family & I were on this last tour with you. Thanks for the wonderful experience! We enjoyed our day with you very much. The pictures turned out great! This was the highlight of our entire week, we just couldn't believe how close Cork got to the boat. Judy Ochs
Hey Judy, so happy to hear that you had such a great time….it really was a very special experience and it could not have been any more perfect for our last trip of the season. Cork is so very special to me….I have seen her every season since 2004 and this year she was late arriving in our part of the Bay and we were a little worried that we may not see her….but she showed up the first week in October. Thanks again Judy 🙂
I was also on this last trip of the season and having Cork come up close for a visit was amazing!
Hey Keith, thanks so much for the comment 🙂 It was a great trip and really was just perfect for the last trip of the season. In case you couldn't tell, I adore Cork 🙂 Thanks again,
Thanks for the wonderful experience! We enjoyed our day with you very much
