Hello everyone, we had 2 trips today and we spent time with finbacks on both.
Our 10am trip took us off Blacks Harbour where we saw 8-10 fin whales all charging around and feeding on herring (we could see many scales in the water). We also took a run offshore to see if we could locate any humpbacks but we didn’t have any luck (well worth the try though, it was beautiful out there).
On our afternoon departure the tide had turned so the whales had moved (because their food is greatly affected by the tide) so we needed some patience but with that we got some great looks at 2 finbacks and we also saw a few minke whales. And, if you were looking in the right place at the right time we did see a breaching basking shark.
Thanks for checking in,
