On the morning of June 3, as our boat sat motionless for several minutes off the Prince Shoal Lighthouse, two fin whales provided a nice surprise, surfacing just a few metres in front of us. Here’s a video showing this beautiful moment. Watch and listen to their powerful blasts! You can watch this video in high definition (click on settings, bottom right).
Six individuals are still roaming in our area.
On a cool and misting morning on June 7, we had the chance to spend some time with a minke whale feeding near the surface. I had to study its behaviour for a good half hour before I could guess where it was going to resurface and poke its head out of the water. I was able to capture the moment with my camera.
Other photos of the day include this gull carrying in its bill… a feather of one of its fellow gulls!
Whether the sun is shining, rain is falling or fog is shrouding the river waters, every trip offshore is unique and magical…
