Mid August Whale Watching with the Locals.

Humpback whale tail

☀ August 16th whale and wildlife departures brought a surprising mix of activity on the Bay of Fundy!

☀ The 10:00am departure spent time with Stumpy and Dot feeding in unison, surfacing under the bow of the Quest as we sat off Head Harbour Lighthouse! It’s not often we see Minke whales swimming so closely, feeding and surfacing at the exact same time! We then got to witness a Minke in the distance breach three times!

The 1:30pm departure spent time with the unnamed Humpback whale that has been hanging around this area.

The 5:00pm departure witnessed 3 full breaches from the same Humpback between the islands and spent time with an actively feeding Minke, Stumpy! 🐋🐋🐋 And we can’t forget the wonderful seabirds: Common Murres, Razorbills, Northern Gannets, Great Shearwaters, Bald Eagles and Loons spotted on the departure as well!
