My husband was really anxious to go whale watching, but I was leery since I get motion sickness pretty easily. The Jolly Breeze advertises that only 1 in 3000 people feel ill on their tall ship (and they have a 96% success rate at seeing whales!) so we decided to give it a go. It was all true—we saw whales and I never felt ill (although, I’ll admit, it was a lovely, calm day). The onboard guides were terrific—very friendly and knowledgeable, and we saw 2 different kinds of whales, porpoises, and bald eagles, among other things. I was especially impressed at what a great experience this was for kids—they brought out various different things during the 3.5 hour trip so there was always something new to look at or do, and they couldn’t possibly get bored. I would recommend this experience very highly! 😊

The excursion we had this past Sunday on the Jolly Breeze was awesome!! The crew was very engaging and well versed. Alex and Jenny were fantastic keeping the kids entertained on our way back, and the captain wanted us to see whales as much as we wanted to see them. Thank you very much to all!!

Such a great time! We took the zodiac, and had such a fun time! Saw 2 whales, seals and porpoises. Our guide Randy, was amazing, super knowledgable. He communicated with other boats to make sure we got to see the whales. Overall awesome experience!

Whale watching is a last minute decision for us. We booked the tour 2 hours before the departure time. When we arrived St.andrew, the check in was very easy. Staffs are very friendly. We chose the tall boat that was the only option available when we book it. and we are glad we chose this boat. Kids are having so much fun on the sailboat, Captain was interacting with kids, teaching them how to sail . Crew are showing the sea creatures to everyone on board. They have blanket, hot chocolate, homemade cookie. We were lucky to see sunset on the way back to the shore. We saw lots whales and learnt so much from this tour. Thank you Jolly breeze ! for the amazing experience in NB

We booked this excursion less than 24 hours before departing. We realized right after we booked it the travel time from arriving at the airport to the traveling to the boat wasn't enough time to get there for the departure time. We were very disappointed we could not take this amazing tour!. We called the company and also emailed them. Even though we were past the 24 hours cancellation cut off they accommodated us and gave us a full refund. This is truly great customer service and would highly recommend this company Thank you Joanna and Robert great appreciate it!!
