Humpback off Wilson's Beach In Head Harbour Passage

Hey Art and all you readers of I Love Quoddy WILD!  We were able to get 2 trips in today despite hurricane Danny moving into the Bay.  Our morning trip took us back off the Wolves were we found large numbers of North Atlantic right whales (30-40).  We saw a few breaches in the distance and we had a mom/calf pair and some courtship behaviour.  Check out the videos on the Quoddy Link Blog.

This afternoon, the winds increased and some fog settled in so we stayed inshore but found a familiar "face" in Head Harbour Passage.  Cork, a 7 year old female humpback we usually see in the offshore area showed up inshore off Casco Bay and made her way over to Wilson's Beach, Campobello!  I attached a few photos, they were taken the rain so they aren't the greatest.
