Just got back from our whaling cruise, and we enjoyed it even more than we expected. Saw lots of pilot whales, must have been at least 30 throughout the 3 hours. A few were very close to the boat, and the others were varying distances away. The captain did his best to get us where we could see them, and... More

Lots of shopping and eatery establishment, very small village. Excellent and great value for money. The commentery was very good fair size boat with about... More

We were very pleased with our trip here. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The best part was the boat. There was room to move around to see the whales. If you want to see whales go here!

Me and my girlfriend lived in Sydney all our lives and both had never done the Cabot Trail. So we got the kids at their aunts for the weekend so we took off on an adventure. We never even planned on going whale watching but I'm so glad we did. Amazing people. Captain was so friendly and funny. Talked with... More

We had a great guide named, Frank. He told us all about the different whales and other sea life to be seen. We did see dolphins and seals but no whales. Trip out was a bit rough but it was fun anyway.

Very entertaining guide! Saw lots of adorable seals and some meinke whales real close. Great scenery. Captain was fantastic - even let the kids drive the boat!! Totally worth the family rate. Highly recommend bringing seat cushions - seats are hard.

They did their best, but for whatever reason the day we went there was at most a single sighting of a whale for about 2 seconds, and water was rough, so a few people got quite seasick. The scenery was beautiful, and the guide did a good job of telling about the area.

We enjoyed our visit to the sea with the Love Boat Whale Cruises! The staff was friendly and professional and we got to see a pack of pilot whales from quite close by. The captain steered the boat safely even in the poor weather we had - actually we got a chance to see funnel cloud in the horizon! After... More

First time whale watching, staff very knowledgable and polite. Seen a pod of about 50 Pilot whales and they let the kids steer the boat which they loved. Would recommend this adventure to anyone.

Yes we saw whales, not many but 2 sightings. The voyage was more than whales, it included history of the area, views of the coast and the smells of the sea. Worth the time - yes yes.
