This tour was so much fun! A lot of laughs, wildlife, sights, and beautiful views. It was well organized, just the right amount of time. Well worth it - get down to the dock and sign up early!

This is one of the best things to do in Cape Breton with Captain John at the helm. He is totally entertaining as he cruises around the beautiful bay. You can't have a better cocktail cruise than this!!

We were on a beautiful indian summer day for a 1 hour tour with the Caravan tour. If you want to see an eagle close up in action - there is nothing like it. John and his staff were fantastic. A must do in Baddeck.

There were no pets on our sail. I sort of doubt it, but you should call or email them directly about it!
