I would definitely recommend Mariner Cruises because you get a lot of additional information about whales and other sea animals instead of just seeing them. The cruise is excellent in terms of service and education - thanks to Penny, Amy and the rest of the...More

We took the whale watching trip a few weeks ago and it was amazing. We saw so many humpback whales and a few up close. Excellant customer service and the staff is very knowledgable and almost as excited as the rest of us!

From Digby, you need to count with 1.5 hours to get to Brier Island as you will get 2 Ferries to get there. You just follow the street down the Digby Neck. We were there a 23feet Mobile Home without any problem.

Our tour lasted 3.5 hours. It was $49 per adult. The water was a bit choppy but only 1 person got queasy. If you are prone to seasickness I'd suggest bonnine or Dramamine and you'll be fine. It's such an amazing tour!
