During a 4 day period in August '20, Pouch Cove had a couple of active pods of Humpback Whales visit its area. Clearly visible from the shores, there was a momma and calf, several larger humpback whales, and a few minke whales. Several breaches and a huge display of tails, surfaces, and momma / calf bonding experiences made their visit extra special for onlookers. Whales are most common in our Atlantic waters between July through August annually but are not predictable in terms of appearance, abundance, or proximity to shore
Several licensed charter companies provide boat tours to see whales, other aquatic life, and seabirds more distant from shore. Highly recommended, these charter companies can bring you to the nesting grounds of the puffins, murre, shearwater, razorbills, black legged kittiwake and other sea birds that migrate in huge numbers to the area annually
