Still trying to outrun the heat wave, we travelled up the Saint Lawrence river towards the small town of Riviere-Du-Loup where we had the opportunity to do some whale watching. This is one of my favourite activities back home where I go out on my own boat and visit the Orcas on a regular basis. Sometimes I get a glimpse of Minke whales or Grey whales.
This was opportunity to see Fin whales for the first time. While they do not make for the best photographic subjects since they are so flat and do not breach like an Orca, it was still pretty exciting.
In total, we saw 30 Minke whales and 12 Fin whales.
