Thank You to Claire for the report
For our first trip of the season we were able to find a minke whale, it took a bit of searching but had some good looks and he even rolled on his side for us! We also saw seals, some porpoise and eagles!

10am: This morning we were unable to locate a whale but it was a beautiful morning on the water, with good looks at a some seals and a trip to Whitehorse Island to check on the nesting seabirds.
1:30pm: This afternoon we headed out with low winds and stopped with harbour and grey seals at Black Ledge. We went up the coastline of mainland New Brunswick to Bliss Island Lighthouse then headed over to view Whitehorse Island. The greater black backed gulls and herring gulls were hanging out with cormorants and more seals! We saw a few guillemots fly by. We then headed down the coast of Campobello to Nancy’s Head where we found a minke. We turned around and followed this whale back up the coast of Campobello Island. We also got a few glimpses of harbour porpoise. We picked up a second minke whale on the way back to port.
