What the 500+ folks aboard didn’t see (below) during the Labor Day Sea Serpent Whale Watch:
What we did see on the September 5, 2009 afternoon tour (thanks to new Bar Harbor Whale Watch photos by Laura Howes, College of the Atlantic, via Zack Klyver):
Basking shark (confirmed, updated number was five, of which one is shown here).
Humpback whales (confirmed named individuals, Littlespot and Knuckles, plus one unidentified whale).
Thanks to photos from Bill and Rebecca Edmondson, this is the shy minke whale above and below, that stayed as far away as the Sea Serpents, during the morning trek into the Bay of Fundy.
Sea Serpents will exist…in the museum, at least in art and replicas.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
