We had a beautiful, sunny morning for our Whale Watching trip. We were out about 2 1/2 hours. We left from Johnson Bay at 9:00 a.m. From there we went to Cobscook and Fundy Bay. We saw whales, seals, and lots of birds. It was a great trip!

Boarding the Lorna Doone
Northern Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) 10 to 30 feet. The Minke is the smallest of the Rorquals and the most common (the three Rorquals are Northern Minke Whale, Bryde's Whale and Sei Whale. Their blowholes and dorsal fins are usually visible above the water at the same time, unlike some other whales).
Fin Whale (Balaenoptera physalus) 40 - 80 feet. The Fin Whale is one of the fastest swimmers among whales - up to 35 mph! The most diagnostic field mark is the unique asymmetrical jaw coloring: white on the right side, dark on the left.
