We had a great time! We saw minke, finback, and right whales; in addition to many harbor porpoise, seals and eagles. Our captain, Andrew, was exceptional! He went out of his way and stayed over to show us as much as possible, of course the weather was accommodating. The boat was fast, fun and rode better in the water than... More

Everything about the experience was great. We chose to make our reservations in person, and the clerk was very warm and helpful. The whale-watching the next day was exceptional. So much fun to have a ride in the speedy zodiac to get us to the whales quickly - more time for whale-watching, less time in transit. Saw many fin-back whales... More

This is worth taking the time to come by and go with this company!! Extremely well priced for what you get!! The Captain was very knowledgeable, and the boat was fast, roomy, comfortable, and perfect for this adventure!! Though my first time out on a boat this small, I felt safe, and had an amazing time!! We say numerous different... More

Choose wisely if you can! We went on the first morning ride, and it was very foggy. The boat broke down, and had to be towed back and we all had to move to the other boat, so we got a late start. Andrew was a great captain, and very informative. He pointed out bald eagles, harbor seals, and after... More

Enjoyed a very nice whale watch yesterday with Fundy Tide Whale Watching. Andrew was able to point out finback whales and a humpback along with numerous harbor porpoises and seals. We also saw bald eagles. I really enjoyed the zodiac experience.

This was so cool. Whale watching sounds immediately something super dorky and strange, I was pleas angle surprised by how much fun we had. I picked this tour because of the option of a tour on zodiac rather than a large tourist boat. My brother and I say at the front which makes for a bumpy ride, but was a... More

I have been on many whale watching tours and this is by far the best one I have ever been on. Pat, the guide, was knowledgeable and fun. He maintained professional standards, as in not harassing or chasing the whales, but managed to get us up close experiences. He worked hard to make sure we had the best views possible... More

We had a blast. The captain loves what he does. We saw many Fin whales and porpoises. When there was a sighting of a tail out of the water, we went searching for the first humpback of the season. We would love to do this outing again, some day.

Now, seeing about 8 finback whales and first humpback of the season might influence this review.... The advantage of the Zodiac is a quick 30 minute ride out to prime territory. My kids generally don't get seasick (we have a sailboat) but we didn't have to spend an hour motoring out on one of the larger crafts and then spend... More
