It has been smoking hot in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick this past week and many people have taken any opportunity possible to spend some time in the water to cool off!
Basking sharks also seem to be lounging around at the surface of the water in the Bay of Fundy. We’ve had 4 more sightings over the last couple weeks–two from Grand Manan and two from Digby Neck.
On August 5, a basking shark was seen swimming back and forth off Sandy Cove Beach on Digby Spit and ten days later on August 15, another basking shark was seen by the Hutten family zipping back and forth between Long Island and Digby Neck. A basking shark was seen in Whale Cove, Grand Manan on August 13 and the next day, one was seen breaching off Swallowtail Lighthouse!
