Top 10 paddles of 2013 - #7

On 13 July a group of us went looking for whales outside of Witless Bay.  We left Witless Bay and made our way generally in the direction of Great Island.

There were whales about but it seemed always from a distance.  And these were minke whales not the humpbacks we hoped to encounter.

We started in clear skies but fog settled in and the whales stopped breaching outside of Great Island.

While we didn't see anymore whales, we saw thousands of sea birds.  The sound and smell was amazing.  Any day in the company of whales is a great day and that's why its on my list of top paddles for the year.
