We spent Saturday out chasing whales, dolphins, and seals around the confluence of the Saguanay and St Lawrence. The merging current, and huge water temperature differences create long rips of boiling water that make for great feeding by the critters. We saw lots and lots of minkes, a few humpbacks, harp seals, and probably harbor dolphins but we aren't sure. We're pretty sure we spotted a blue whale from a distance. They are the largest creatures ever to inhabit the planet. And of course, more belugas. A fine time was had by all, then, to top off the day, we ran into Dave and Lisa of Ke'Ola Kai and they joined us for dinner at the marina restaurant.
