Hello everyone, we have been having some wonderful trips out on the Bay of Fundy out of St. Andrews recently. We have been spending time with mostly minke whales but the fin whale sightings have increased for the month of August as the prey in the water seems to be increasing.
On August 9th on our 10am departure we had a very special sight with a breaching minke whale! Although it is incredibly rare to see a minke whale breach it does happen in our area more often than others and we typically see it a handful of times a season. It’s quite often the same whale, one affectionately refered to as Gonzo due to the shape of the dorsal fin. I was able to get quite a few photos that I wanted to share with you, I hope you enjoy.
The harbour porpoise and seal sightings continue to be great, they are usually very consistent throughout the entire season. We are starting to see many bald eagle on Whitehorse Island, there to try to prey upon the young birds. This morning we counted at least 10 eagles!
Thanks for checking in,
