The staff here were very accommodating. We were going to take a 6 p.m. ride, and got in earlier, so they fit us into the 4 p.m. Took the small Zodiac, which is a treat in itself. Although the day was sunny on the wharf, out further we ran into fog, so not the easiest to spot the whales, but... More

If you want to go whale watching....you HAVE to go in a zodiac!! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took us to the best places for the best chances to see the whales. There were other tours out there but this is the way to go. You can get up close and see more my traveling in the zodiac.

From the time we climbed into the boat until you climb back out its a blast Captain Pete is able to turn on a dime and get to where ever the whales are. We had a foggy day but still got to see lots of wildlife

We arrived in St Andrew's on a mission to go Whale watching, but with nothing booked we tried a few offices along the peir Fundy Tide Runner's looked the most exciting due to their Zodiac tour. (A Zodiac is a type of small fast rubber boat) We had wanted to go out as soon as possible but the afternoon tour... More

Captain Pat is an experienced friendly biologist and captain. The girl answering the phones and taking bookings was very helpful. Safety and ethical whale watching are clearly the priorities, and in the game of chance and speculation as to where the whales are, it was good to see that out on the water, the commercial captains communicate and cooperate with...

We chose this zodiac tour because we did not have too much time in Saint Andrews and of course since Rick Mercer did it. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, no fog, we were suited up in these floatation snow suit looking things...felt so goofy, but made for some excellent family pictures. As we all walked down to the dock... More

We booked a day ahead, but there was a lot of fog when we went to the dock. Captain Pat explained the situation and was blunt about the fact that we probably wouldn't see a whale. We decided to go anyway although another party (half the boat) decided not to go. They really missed out. We had a blast! Pat... More

It was a fantastic experience. The driver was awesome, with lots of knowledge about sea life, we chased this one whale! so amazing! Seen lots of sea life like seals. The only bad thing is if you don't see a whale they don't do refunds or take you out again and I was unlucky and got sea sick but was... More
