Beluga in Friars Roads, 2002

1 September 2002 - The owner-operator of East Coast Ferries, Ltd., of Deer Island, NB, reported sighting a small white whale several times recently while running the ferries within the passages of Passamaquoddy Bay between Deer Island and Campobello Island, and between Deer Island and Eastport, Maine. It may be a beluga whale, which are white when adult, and which are known to be infrequent visitors to this area. Belugas generally reside year 'round in waters much farther north.

As I recall, a beluga was sighted the following summer, as well.
