Took the 2:45 pm tour with husband and one teenager. We had a very nice time, saw several minke whales, porpoises and seals. The zodiac was very comfortable and relaxing. I chose to wear the full flotation suit and found it very comfortable and warm.

We had a group of 8 from our bus trip to Florida in March. So we wanted to get together for a day this summer. We decided to go with jolly breeze. It was cheaper and 1/2 hour longer than the other companies there. We booked the whole boat to ourselves( cheaper to do this if you have 9 or more). It was more private than going with another family you don't know. Also no masks if its your bubble. The 2 running the boat were so amazing. Very fun people. It was very easy to get into the suits as well. They have them in every size. The boat was so fast, got us there quick so we could see the whales and other wildlife in the sea😁. When we got back they had hot Choc and home-made macaroons. Well done. Perfect ending to a perfect day❤️

Went on the 12 person zodiac for a morning tour. Jolly Breeze provided dry suits which provided a needed levelOf warmth. The boat was very comfortable. The tour lasted about 2.5 hours and I felt safe the entire time. And yes, we saw whales, porpoises, and seals along with the East Quoddy lighthouse. The tour team was professional. Great value.

From booking to embarking to the tour itself, everything was a ´jolly breeze ´! Obviously weather is always a factor fir this kind of tour so we were quite lucky. The Passamaquoddy Bay and Bay of Fundy were flat calm. Smooth sailing the whole way. Mia and boat Captain Richard were so great. Mia Check us in and got us suited up in survival suits for our early morning cruise. We got on the boat and headed out. The boat was a 12 person semi rigid inflatable. Very comfortable and stable. We were lucky to have left just before sunrise and we paused to watch it before entering Bay of Fundy. We saw harbour seals, grey seals, Minke whales some porpoises and a dolphin, as well as an abundance of birds. All in all a great experience. Highly recommend.

In the last 4 weeks I've had 3 trips to sea with Jolly Breeze, from sunrise to sundown. Every adventure has been excellent with so much to see that's new every time - whales, porpoise, seals, fish, birds and lots more. The staff and crew are amazing, extremely knowledgeable. The ride is smooth and being so close to the water makes for great viewing. I can't wait to be able to enjoy this with friends and family when they visit.
