We booked the 6:30 pm tour which was the last of the day. Our captain was Andrew and he was friendly, personable and knowledgeable. The ride was fast and exciting. If you go earlier in the day sunblock is a must. You don't feel the heat, in fact it was cold but on land it was 27 degrees Celsius. We... More

We all got suited up and headed out into the zodiac - at first it seemed crowded as we had a full boat but when the guide stopped we were allowed to spread out and it was fine. It was pouring rain and freezing cold but we got to see 4 different whales, seals, and porpoises and it was worth... More

What a spectacular day! It started and then once the sun came out the wildlife came to life! We saw three Eagles, many porpoises, adorable seals and at least five minke whales. Greg took his job seriously and delivered. Highly recommend to couples and families.

I was told upon arrival that I might not see whales, which deterred me a little, but then decided I wanted a trip on the water regardless. The captain took us out on a 25 ft zodiac (holds 12 people max) which was much smaller than the other whale watching boats but made for a much more exciting and personalized... More

We were very disappointed in the minimal number of whales in the area. I thought the Bay of Fundy was hyped up as a good place to whale watch but I really don't think that any more. In the area was a few minke and our guide didn't want to take the chance on spotting the elusive finback. Nothing impressive... More

We booked this tour a few months before our trip, St. Andrews is a great place and we were there for Canada Day so they had a farmers market and it was super busy. We got there at 9:30am check in was easy and we got suited up and we were out on the water by 10am. There was about... More

We agreed to go on this excursion with friends although I was a little concerned about the safety of a small boat in very cold water. I needn't have worried. We were all dressed in survival suits (bright orange and very puffy - we all looked strange). I felt very comfortable during the ride and was able to relax and... More

My friend and I made a day trip to Saint Andrews and decided on this at the last minute. So glad we did! It was about $60 for a two hour tour and was well worth it. Although the brochure says to make sure to wear long pants, warm clothing, etc, we were allowed to go in our shorts and... More

We were the first tour of 2016 to see a whale, so that was exciting! We also saw porpoises, seals and eagles. Whales usually aren't spotted until closer to July, from what we were told, so we were very lucky to see one. His name was Slice :) The customer service was excellent. Melissa was very accommodating and ran a... More

My husband, two kids (in their 20's) and myself had the best day whale watching with this company. We saw a whale, seals and dolphins. The driver was great, the boat was great, felt very safe. You wear a full suit life jacket (and it's pretty clean) and they do a good safely briefing. Defiantly worth the money.
