Humpback whales are one of the most common whales we see while out whale watching in the Bay of Fundy. They are characterised by their long, white pectoral fins, the hump in front of their dorsal fin, and their unique fluke markings. Did you know that humpback whales can weight up to 45 tonnes?! That’s about 5 times the weight of a Tyrannosaurus Rex! We know… it’s whaley impressive.

At Whale Camp, you might see a humpback whale coming up for breath, slapping its flippers on the surface of the water, doing barrel rolls, spy hopping, or even BREACHING! Experience the beauty of this gentle giant for one week or two at marine biology summer camp in 2024 – the ocean is waiting for you!
