We had one trip this morning (we had to cancel our right whale trip due to the weather forecast).  We made our way into the Islands and found a few minke whales.  As we were watching the minke whales a young herring gull landed on the foredeck of the Quoddy Link.  This young bird was very obviously hand raised and incredibly tame.  He stayed with us for a while and eventually Nick had to pick him and he did fly away….he was so sweet.

John decided to take us off in search of fin whales.  We did find a finback towards Whitehorse and we got some great looks at him.

Thanks to everyone who joined us this morning,
