Whales in the Fog!

Greetings from the Bay of Fundy! Our cruises continue to be exceptional despite the fog that has been lingering. Many whales seem to be in the area with sightings of different individuals every day! Since the last post, we have had the addition of two more calves in the Bay. The mothers were identified as Mocha and Cirrus, who hasn't had a calf since 2004! The calving interval for humpback whales is usually every two to three years.


We have been seeing lots of activity bythe whales, including Flame, who amused us by playing in a rockweed streak. Flame is an adult male that we have been seeing here since 1986
