Third Day: Monday, 7/1/2013
This was our day out on the St. Lawrence to spot some whales. We drove down river to the town of Grandes-Bergeronnes and put in at a tour operation with a boat ramp. There was supposed to be a launch charge but the proprietor told us to pay after we got back from paddling. When we got back the place was locked up tight, so we got off free here. We headed out into the St. Lawrence and pretty quickly began to hear the spouts and see the arching whalebacks. We saw what we believe to be humpbacks, a fin, and some minke whales. There seemed a particularly good spot that the tour boats congregated around, so I placed a waypoint when I was there (Beleine Hot Spot). I spent some time there and did seem to spot several more than we had seen in the rest of our voyage.
