Finback Whales!

Just a quick update from the crew at Island Quest, the weather in the past few days has improved and we have had great success with whale sightings! Today was phenomenal for Finback sightings (Fin whales are the second largest mammals in the world - reaching lengths of 80 feet!) I have included a photo of one of our "Junior Captains" - a chance to drive the Island Quest and make a memory that will last a lifetime!

Shark Fishing Anyone?

Talk about an amazing day for Shark Fishing aboard the SeaFox! Captain Chris and 3 amazing guests had the opportunity to hook on to three Porbeagle Sharks! The three sharks were very large - approximately 8-9 feet in length and weighing 135-160kgs (300-350lbs)!!

Porbeagle sharks are a stout-bodied shark that resemble their relatives the great white! Acheiving lengths of 8-12 feet the Porbeagle is a large shark that feeds on the many types of fish found in the Bay of Fundy.

2011 Season Starts with a Splash

The 2011 season is starting out wonderfully here at Island Quest, yesterday while out on our 2pm departure we had the pleasure of spending time with Minke AND Finback Whales! So not only are we sighting our usual favorites, the Harbour Seals, Harbour Porpoise, Bald Eagles, and multiple types of nesting sea birds we are also seeing those friendly giants - the WHALES!

I would also like to announce the enhancement of our beautiful whale watching vessel, the Island Quest. Captain Chris, a master boat builder, decided to make an addition of 5.5 feet to the stern, providing our guests with more outside viewing space and seating!!

Come experience the Bay of Fundy our way - The Authentic Whale Watching experience! Hope to see you soon!
