Yep...you guessed it, we have fog! But, that doesn't deter us from whale watching and seeing whales. In fact, some of our best trips can be in the fog. Just recently, we experienced a "friendly" minke whale that seemed to be doing more people watching than anything. In normal fashion for a foggy day, we shut down our engine and listened for the whales' blows to determine their location. We heard this minke and he/she seemed to make a beeline for us! This whale stayed with us for half an hour, paralleling our course, rolling on its side allowing us to see its eye as it watched us! It was truly an awesome sight!
We have also sighted some humpbacks closer to Brier Island. They were identified as Luna, #0034 and the third has yet to be matched to the North Atlantic Humpback Whale Catalogue. No you can't order one but you can match the fluke print to the thousands of photographs that are in it!
So yes, despite its limited visibility, the fog does hold some magic!
