June Sightings

The season has started very well with sightings of humpbacks on every cruise. We are still just running our Zodiac (tm) for the time being as the Mega Nova is getting ready for its commencement on June 18. So far we have sighted 6 different humpbacks, 3 of which have been identified as Luna, Littlespot and #0034. There have also been sightings of minke whales and fin whales. Prey species (herring and krill) has been abundant, enticing the seabirds and cetaceans into the Bay. Some of the birds that have been sighted are Sooty Shearwaters, Greater Shearwaters, Puffins, and Razorbills. There's lots to see in the Bay of Fundy!
