Good evening everyone, this is Danielle back with Quoddy Link Marine for a 14th season on the Bay of Fundy! Welcome to our NEW website and our NEW blog! I hope you enjoy and comments and questions are always welcome.
Well, this season has started off a little slow in the whale department and this has been the trend across the entire Bay of Fundy, everything just seems to be a little late from the harsh winter that the Maritimes experienced. We have been seeing minke whales and the sightings are becoming more consistent everyday as well as the feed in the water seems to be increasing. Here are some photos of the minkes we have seen so far this season.
The seal sightings have been great with large numbers of both harbour and grey seals being sighted on almost every departure. And the number of harbour porpoise in the area is also increasing daily.
The life in Whitehorse Island is wonderful as nesting season is in full swing. Don’t forget to check out Nick’s bird sightings page from the drop down menu above where he talks about everything avian in much more detail.
Bald eagles are a highlight for many of our guests and we are lucky enough to have a nest with 2 eaglets this season we can very easily show our passengers at any time of the tide.
Thank You so much for checking in and the posts here will be much more regular now that the season is in full swing.
