This tour was great! Captain Pat showed us probably 6-8 whales plus porpoises and other wildlife. We were delayed in leaving by about 45 mins, but in the end, it was a plus as we got to see the sunset from the water just as the tour was ending. We did get wet (despite the wetsuit) - wish I'd brought... More

We booked, not knowing what to expect...This activity was soooo awesome. Kenny our guide was great fun also...All around great. We saw some sea lions, seals, small whales. But even just the Zodiac ride was worth the $$$ - Amazing time...we all had a big smile for the full 2 hours....:) Thank you so much for a great time !!!... More

The weather wasn't great, it was a bit foggy but we had a great time anyway! Andrew, our guide, made sure of it! He wisked us out to where the Minke whales were feeding... It was amazing! The harbour proposes were coming up along side the zodiac putting on quite a show. Andrew was very personable and extremely knowledgable when... More

Captain Pat gave us a good tour out to the whales and porpoises. Saw a Fin whale and several Minke whales. It was a great trip out where we got to see a bald eagle and harbour seals. The trip was very comfortable and we took lots of great pictures. Thanks for a great adventure. We would definitely go again!

We were out with Fundy Tide Runners yesterday and started out with a bit of boat trouble. The captain took us quickly back to the marina to grab another boat and we were soon on our way again. You will get a bit of water sprayed up in your face here and there, and you don't need to bundle up... More

This was definitely the way to go if you're looking for something a little more exciting. We did get sprayed pretty good from the boat zipping over the water, hitting waves and a bit splashing up. Saw lots of minke whale fins, an island of seals, some eagles... overall great trip.

We had a great time out on the boat with Andrew. He is very knowledgeable and shared some excellent information of the region and wildlife with us. We got to the area where we watched whales quickly on the zodiac and even saw seals on the way! We were able to view at least 3 or more whales. This is... More
