Toothed Whales

Frequent sightings of:

  • Pilot Whales

  • Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins

Occasional sightings of:

  • Common Dolphins

Toothed Whales are much smaller than the baleen variety. The pilot whales and Atlantic white-sided dolphins travel in pods ranging from half a dozen to one hundred. Toothed whales feed primary on fish, and since there is plenty of fish in the waters surrounding Bay St. Lawrence, we see plenty of toothed whales during our tours. The pilot whale and Atlantic white-sided dolphin are commonly found in our region. However, we also have sightings of harbour porpoise, common dolphin, and white-beaked dolphins but not on a regular basis.
