We loved the Jolly Breeze tall ship adventure. The Captain and crew made us feel right at home aboard this beautiful sailing ship and the hot food and drink were very welcomed and very delicious. The added advantage of having a marine biologist onboard, as part of the crew, was very beneficial. There was a touch tank containing marine life... More

What a wonderful time on the water! We sailed with the crew and saw seals, porpoises and a WHALE! The crew was excellent and our children were constantly entertained - they even got to touch sea creatures (starfish, sea cucumber, hermit crab, sea urchin and lobster). They also got to steer the ship. I would very highly recommend this ship... More

Went with my boyfriend and we are not into touristy stuff usually but we figured it might be fun. The staff were amazing, lots of information to give but not super organized so some info we got twice, and some we couldn't hear. It is definitely cold so listen when they tell you to dress appropriately. The pea soup was... More

We enjoyed our time on the Jolly Breeze! We saw 3 Minke whales (from a distance), different types of seals and bald eagles. The boat is in good condition and the staff is fantastic. How wonderful that a marine biologist is on board! Getting breakfast from downstairs was a bit of a challenge. The boat was not quite at capacity,... More

The Jolly Breeze is a well cared for sail boat that takes you back to the days of sailing. Well trained and very friendly crew that made sure the trip was fun. Views of coastal Maine and New Brunswick are spectacular.

We were expected to sail like a sailboat, but we were propelled by a motor. It's more for a family: costumes for kids, makeup, and a small breakfast.

Jolly Breeze T, Owner at Jolly Breeze Tall Ship Whale Adventures, responded to this review

We do prioritize Whale Watching and as such, we are using both the motor and the sails. The two jib sails are raised each tour by volunteers. The whales are out in the Bay of Fundy and cannot be spotted from St. Andrews itself. We do often turn the motor off and sail along with the whale(s). I am glad... More

My husband and I, our daughter and son-in-law, and our two grandchildren (ages 10 and 2) took an afternoon trip on the Jolly Breeze in search of whales. Though we did not see any whales, the journey into the Bay of Fundy was delightful. The crew explained the points of land and landmarks we passed, made sure the kids had... More

It was a perfect sunny July day. I hosted a group of Peace Corps Volunteers visiting Maine and New Brunswick from Oregon, Maryland and Minnesota. We decided to visit St. Andrews for the day and take a whale watching trip with the Jolly Breeze. The crew were courteous and friendly, the pea soup was delicious, the biologist's lesson with the...

The Tall ship whale adventure is far and above the best whale outing that can be found in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Jade, Randy, and Bob are both informative and entertaining during the trip, as well as the Captain. The tall ship is a magnificent ship and is a pleasure to ride even if one did not see all the...
