Good evening everyone, thanks so much for checking in! It’s Danielle with Quoddy Link Marine bringing you an update from the water thanks to Jolinne.

I was told that this morning’s and afternoon’s departure they had multiple minkes whales on both departures.
This evening’s departure, we spent time searching the island to see if there were minke whales in areas we have had them in recent years. None were found, so we made our way down towards Windmill Point, Campobello Island. There was some boat traffic around the two feeding minke whales, so we stayed back and watched from a distance. With a bit of time, the boat traffic cleared and were we able to spend some time with the whales. Before leaving, Breadknife (a 3rd minke whale) surfaced near the catamaran and did a nice series of shallow dives right beside us. On our way back towards Saint Andrews we stopped in the Old Sow which was “running” pretty hard It’s always quite impressive to watch all the water boiling and circling in the area. It’s actually the largest tidal whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere.
Thank you to everyone who joined us today!
