The very best whale watching may be in July and August but June can be good too, especially this June, as more and more whales are arriving in Newfoundland with each passing day.

Today my mom and I went on a boat tour of the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, we saw a lot of whales and of course plenty of seabirds, after the tour was done we even saw a mink in the parking lot!

Here’s a few shots from today:
