My husband and I visited in the beginning of October. It was very cold on the water but the lovely soup warmed us up. We saw birds, seals and 1 whale. I had selected this one because the ship was really cool and they had a bathroom. I was a little worried about climbing the ladder to get to the... More

Thank you for joining us in October and braving the chilly weather! We do our best with the soup, blankets and jackets, and heated cabin to keep our guests as comfortable as possible. Glad the the boat stairs were not overly challenging. The handholds certainly help. Hope you have some fond memories to carry you through the winter! More

This tall ship easily accommodates more than 30 passengers for impressive whale-watch tours of the Bay of Fundy. Staff is friendly and informative. A free cup of soup offered halfway through the voyage helps counteract the chill winds. The crew clearly knows the region and provides a running commentary on the bay's wildlife, islands and history. It is breezy, without... More

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. We understand that it was disappointing that the weather did not cooperate for your tour.

The staff at Jolly Breeze are just lovely. They made the boat ride so pleasant and offered so much information along the way. Unfortunately there are no whales in June and we likely would not have booked the trip had we known that. I booked it because the business claims a high success rate of spotting whales which apparently is... More

Thank you for your review. The whales were not in their full numbers this past June with a late migration northward of the whales, lobsters and other wildlife due to the long harsh record breaking winter in our area. However, some Junes we have had a 100% success rate at seeing whales. The staff will sure appreciate the 10 star... More

Our group of 45 were on the September 23 afternoon trip. The weather was perfect and we did see whales. The encounter with the sea creatures (lobster, starfish, crabs & etc.) that the young lady, (marine biologist) passed around was a nice experience. We enjoyed the home made pea soup that they served on board.

Thank you for the review. We enjoy taking out the private charter groups and getting to know everyone. Our boat has something for offer everyone especially with it being a classic Tall Ship.
