This excursion was recommended to us by a local and it did not disappoint! The captain was friendly and hospitable. The boat is big enough to be comfortable but small enough that you are close to the water and of course, close to the whales....More

Nice morning in the boat, but no whales :(. The captain managed to find some seals and bald eagles. We were offered a free re-do but couldn't make the time. It would be nice if there was some more commentary in the boat, while the...More

As one of the planners of fun things to do on our first family vacation out to the East Coast this year I knew that whale watching would be a fan favourite. So I went to work looking for places to go on Cape Breton...More
