What a great day on the Bay! On today's whale watch, Captain Jamie documented the first humpback whale of the season. This whale was first sighted last year when it was brought to the Bay of Fundy by its mother whose name is Photon. It's very exciting when we recognize these calves when they return and it's even better knowing that it survived its first year on its own. Passengers, and Jamie were also treated to good looks at a couple of fin whales, the largest baleen whales we regularly see in the Bay of Fundy.

Hello everyone and please forgive me for the lack of posts for last season! Our updates can also be found on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Brier-Island-Whale-and-Seabird-Cruises/107534885958440 The 2011 season was our best ever with sightings of 11 different species of cetaceans. Our research is focused on the curious humpback whale and we were able to document 168 individuals, including 17 calves!
I will do my best in the upcoming season to keep these blog posts regular.
Our 2012 season is scheduled to start on May 12 when we will use the zodiac only and the 50 ft Mega Nova will begin cruising June 12th (STC) If you would like to make reservations, you can call us toll free in USA and Canada 1-800-656-3660. Hope to see you in 2012!
