“Amazing time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The boat was full. Hosts were very knowledgeable of all local species. Saw lots of humpbacks and a few sea birds and seals. Crew had free coffee/hot chocolate and gave blankets if you got cold. Just a very "down home" feeling. Amazing time!!!

“Terrific experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We happened to go on a beautiful sunny Sunday (aug25/13). Very calm waters and not a cloud in the sky. So pleased with how lucky we made out- didn't even have to put my jacket on- just wore my t-shirt!

On this day the whale sighting count was 21 they told us, with about 12-14 being close up views. All were humpback whales I believe. A few were right beside the boat for awesome close up viewing and I got to see one swim right under my feet under the boat. Also saw some dolphins ( or porpoises?) and a seal.
I think this may have been an unusually good day for sightings...but am unsure how many whales on average are seen in a trip.

Excellent trip and the two female guides were wonderful and knowledgable about the marine life.

The boat was large with sitting room for all 30 or so people on board. There is a bathroom on board and they have water, tea, coffee & hot chocolate available.

A wonderful trip and I'd highly recommend this company and will definitely visit the Bay of Fundy with them again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Just went whale watching again on Aug. 7, 2013 and as always had a great time and this time we saw 7 whales. There were 5 humpback whales and 2 fin whales. Two of the humpback whales were about 10 feet from the boat and one of them stuck their face out of the water and looked and watched us for about 2 to 3 minutes. It was awesome. It costs $48 per adult and is worth every penny. Laura from Halifax, NS
