10am: This morning we headed out in flat calm waters. We checked out a few areas and found a minke whale who didn’t want to be watched so we moved on. We found 3 more minke whales, including Slice, a local favourite! We were thrilled when they kept coming up around the boat. We could see their minke mittens (the white bands on the pectoral flippers that are unique to minke whales) very clearly in the water! We stopped with seals on the way back to St Andrews.

1:30pm: This afternoon we started with seals, a bald eagle, and a minke whale! We also got to see the seabirds at Whitehorse Island, harbour porpoise, and Head Harbour Lighthouse on Campobello Island. We picked up 3 additional minke whales during the trip as well!

5pm: We started this evening with a bald eagle and some seals. We quickly picked up 3 minke whales and got great looks at one of them (two were further off in the distance).
