    No sooner have we left the Tadoussac wharf aboard the Bleuvet when a strong northwesterly wind kicks up. Having reached the mouth of the Saguenay, we observe a herd of about 60 animals including adults, juveniles and four newborns. Aquabelle is swimming with four other adults. Not far away from them is another group of eight stocky individuals, probably males. Part of the herd is moving vigorously toward the Charlevoix coast. The crew on board positions itself to try to take a biopsy from one of the animals. The dart is fired but misses its target. There’s always next time!
