In order to get to our tour boat, we had to take the ferry to Grand Manan Island. We sat up top, let the wind blow our hair and listened to these adorable French kids (from actual France) chase each other around because there was a shark. A whale was even spotted from the ferry. But I was praying for better.
Confession: After trying to take photos and missing most of the whale. I gave up. The whale shots that follow were all taken by JD.

Tail! I wonder who sits and tries to match these things.
A little TOO close. The boat got out of the way pretty quickly.
I informed JD of all the correct whale body part terms and bombarded her with tid-bit whale facts the whole afternoon.
I had really wanted to see a whale breach. Apparently one did - on the other side of the boat. This was my 3rd whale watch and I have yet to see that. But this one was still the best. The humpbacks did put on quite a show. And something to look forward to for the next time... I hope.
