10am: This morning we headed out into breezy but sunny conditions. We spent time with harbour and grey seals on Black Ledge then moved out to see what whales the morning would bring. Claire quickly spotted a minke whale that was moving around very slowly and was very easy to watch. After good looks, we headed over to Head Harbour Lighthouse where Rika quickly picked up Breadknife, a locally well known minke whale. Breadknife was very active and kept us guessing where they would surface but we got great looks and even got to experience why these whales are nicknamed “stinky minkes” (the exhale of the whale smells terrible) 🤣 We then swung by Whitehorse Island to look at the birds and more seals before returning our passengers to Saint Andrews.
1:30pm: This afternoon was cloudy and cool but off we went! We stopped with harbour and grey seals on Black Ledge then headed out further to check areas we haven’t visited for a couple days. We found pods of active porpoise! We headed over to check out Head Harbour Lighthouse and found a minke whale nearby. We then got word that more minke whales were further up Head Harbour Passage so we wandered over and found four more minke whales! There were some active bird groups and so many harbour porpoise. We even got to see a few mom and calf porpoise pairs. It was a beautiful day on the Bay of Fundy. Thank you to all our passengers for joining us!
