Earlier this morning, I posted a photograph of the first basking shark sighted in the Bay of Fundy for the year. Well, I just it turns out that some passengers on the ferry from Black’s Harbour to Grand Manan ALSO saw a basking shark that same day, between Grand Manan and the Wolves.
Around 2:30pm, they watched the basking shark, only 100m away, swimming at the surface for about 10 minutes. It was travelling the same direction as the ferry. Great sighting! And thanks for reporting what you saw!
Here is an updated map of the two basking shark sightings made on July 3, 2013.
