Another FINtastic mid-October afternoon – October 15, 2015
Oct 16, 2015 | whale sightings |
WOW…another FINtastic day whale watching out of St. Andrews with 2 large finbacks feeding and working their way along the contour lines off Bliss Island. We got some amazing looks at the whales and just caught the end of the feeding as the tide began to slack off.

We also spent time up Head Harbour Passage with a large group of feeding harbour porpoise and the bald eagles along the Campobello shoreline.

Gulls feeding in Head harbour Passage. At the bottom of the image you can see the bait ball of herring as a dark spot in the water
gulls were not the only ones interested in feeding on the herring
harbour porpoise, check out the dorsal fin, looks like this little one survived an attack from a predator, maybe a shark
THANK YOU to everyone who joined us aboard the Quoddy Link today, it’s so great to finish a season strong but it makes us never want to get off the water.
