We spotted around 15 adult beluga whales in the Les Bergeronnes sector. Other fairly large, white beluga whales joined the herd. Eventually, we found ourselves in the presence of approximately 100 animals, Blue among them. Some of the beluga whales were in pairs, however the majority of them were alone and moving within a small perimeter. Harbour porpoises, fin whales and a minke whale were also present in the area.
Around noon, weather conditions worsened, the waves became higher and fog crept in. Just before leaving the herd we recognized the male beluga whale known as Chérubin and witnessed very active behaviour, such as tail slaps on the water’s surface.
