My husband, two kids (in their 20's) and myself had the best day whale watching with this company. We saw a whale, seals and dolphins. The driver was great, the boat was great, felt very safe. You wear a full suit life jacket (and it's pretty clean) and they do a good safely briefing. Defiantly worth the money.

Our captain (and former owner) was a funny fella. Very sociable and interacted well with our children. Very knowledgeable about the area and the the Bay of Fundy. We spotted two whales-a finback and minke. They did not breach out of the water but still thrilling. If you're looking for a fast ride and thrill then this is the boat... More

This was amazing, was a little concerned about being in a small boat, would it be bumpy, cold, etc. Have no fear they give you floatation suits to wear, bring a stocking cap, saw whales, seals, porpoises, no eagles. Left at 4PM, got back at 6PM, very majestic scenery, guide was great

I would recommend zodiac whale watching, it was a lot of fun. You'll get to the whales fast and have fun on the way. The guide was carefree and knew a lot about the areas history. It's a beautiful area.

This was a worthwhile trip. We saw a minke whale, seals and eagles. It was a little early in the season to see the big whales but it was fun nonetheless. Like others said, the hard bottom zodiac was the way to go. It has a big diesel that gets it up and going fast so that you speed past... More

This trip was amazing! Dave, the skipper, is a great guide with a lot of enthusiasm and a good sense of humor. The experience of being on a zodiac, so close to the surface was fantastic. Even if we hadn't seen any whales it would have been worth it!

We had a great time! The zodiac is the way to go, we passed by all the other boats and got to the whales way before them. The operator really knows his stuff, and we saw quite a few whales. Highly recommend it!

We had an excellent experience with Fundy Tide Runners when Island Quest Marine dropped the ball. We had reserved a spot with Island Quest Marine for 1:30 p.m. over the long weekend, but when we got there for our tour we were asked our names and then told that the boat had broken down and stopped at another wharf (suspicious...I...

Taking the Zodiac out to whale watch is 1 million times better than a catamaran, you get 360 degree view, zero sea sickness and only 12 people on a boat! That means if something is spotted EVERYONE gets a great view instead of hurrying to get to the other side of the boat to get a glimpse ... My friend... More
