So did anybody see a North Atlantic Right Whale?

Recommended Posts

Another Canada/NE cruise season coming to an end. Our cruise on Celebrity Summit was changed and we missed a port due to speed restrictions in the Gulf of St Lawrence. This was enacted by the Canadian government to protect the North Atlantic Right Whale breeding population. I was not happy about missing a port but was intrigued to potentially see one of these endangered whales. Unfortunately we did not see ant type of whales at all. Did anybody sea a Right Whale in the 2017 cruising season?

Many Northern Right Whales were not in their usual feeding grounds in the Bay of Fundy. There were some 16 fatalities this summer/fall. This whale was towed to Miscou Island NB for a necropsy.

Although the NA right whale hangs closer to shore ,I never saw one either. Dont think that is uncommon as there are less than 1800 left in the world.

 

I would think the chances of seeing one would be slim
