Aboard the Bleuvet, off the coast of Les Bergeronnes, we observe a herd of about thirty belugas, all adults. The size of the individuals suggests that the herd is predominantly composed of males. Among them are Cœur and Cumulus. The belugas, which are at a considerable distance, are heading down the St. Lawrence. They stay on the surface for extended periods and take short dives. Little by little, the animals become less dynamic, many of them even beginning to swim in one place. After two hours of observation and photo-identification, we notice that another herd is about to join our belugas. We move toward them in order to better photograph and study them.
