I first want to talk about customer service. We called Captain Brian in the morning. He tried calling back but I failed to give our room number. He came over to the hotel and personally found us. We met down at the docks 10 min later. He encouraged our oldest daughter to steer the lobster boat. We went out and pulled up four pots. The first three had lobsters in them to demonstrate how it was done. Along the way we saw eagles and seals! At the fourth pot, we found a 4 1/2 pound lobster. Unfortunately it was not a catch and eat type of trip. We got to work the pots, remove the lobsters, and throw them back. Brian and Alec were full of knowledge and stories about fishing for lobsters. If you can do only o e thing, I strongly recommend this trip!!! We have many wonderful memories from it!!

Had a great time on this tour! It was a nice addition to our tour of the cabot trail, after hiking and doing land activities. I was looking for an excursion that would not take up an entire day, but that would somehow allow us to take in the Bras d'Or and learn some history in regard to the lobstermen in Nova Scotia. It was a fantastic time and exactly what I was looking for. Bryan and Alec are very personable and insightful. I learned a lot and in the end I felt satisfied to have been able to add a rich experience with some genuine locals. The tour is personal, so if you book an excursion, you book for your party alone and no one else will be on the boat with you, so you get one-on-one attention. The tour is interactive, so you can hook up lobster traps and man the boat if you want. Bryan and Alec gave into all my whims, taking pics, and answering all our questions. You can get up close to the lighthouse and it is possible to see eagles and seals en route. The Bras d'Or is just so beautiful and really relatively unspoiled. It is large and rife with life and you really get that sense. I hardly saw any "yachts" hanging out, but such a place has the potential to be a millionaires's playground - Almost felt you stumbled on a yet to be discovered body of water/part of the world. Really enjoyed it! And I would recommend this tour for any age. So come learn a little about the surrounding area and the industry that made that lobster sitting on your plate for dinner that night possible, while enjoying it's beauty. You will appreciate it so much more!

This was one of the highlights of our trip! Bryan and Alec were so fun, welcoming, and knowledgeable. We got to feed some eagles in the area, haul up the lobster traps and examine the catch. Great value and am definitely planning on doing another trip (fishing perhaps?) when we come back to Baddeck.

If we could give this a score higher than 5 we would. Great value. Teenagers / Tweens loved it. 90 minutes well spent. If you are near Baddeck NS do this excursion.
