Wonderful three hour ride. Frank the guide was very friendly and accommodating. Blankets are available on board as we needed to wrap up my three year old. Water is sold for one dollar a bottle. The captain lets the kids steer the boat. Unfortunately the whales were hiding that night and we only saw a seal in the distance. It... More

We were so happy with our experience travelling with children (ages 9 and 12). We had pre-booked a tour for the following day but arrived in town early. Stopped by office and our reservation was changed without hesitation. Went on the 5:00 cruise. Several customers were using wheelchairs/walkers on our tour but both captain and tour guide ensured they got... More

Another afternoon spent on the Love Boat Whale Cruise this last weekend. Staff is always ever so friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely making plans to re-experience our ocean & coasts with the Seaside Whale & Nature Cruises in the future!

We left the dock at around 4:00 and were lucky to see a number of pods of pilot whales a few miles out. We followed them for a while and saw many more pods further out. Everyone onboard were pleased that the cruise was such a good experience and that we had seen so many whales. As an added photo... More

We got a great deal on the whale watching with a family rate. The captain and tour guide were very knowledgeable. The boat was spacious and we had enough room to move around. The tour was splendid. We saw lots and lots of pilot whales and a few seals. The captain took us very close to the whales. The 2.5... More

We travelled through Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and PEI and wanted to see whales so badly. During our trip we did three whale tours and have not seen any whales. Peole told us that it may be too late to see whales. They did all swim to Twillingate and further to Labrador already. Since we pre-booked this boat tour we did... More

My husband and I took this boat trip while vacationing in Cheticamp in Aug. 2015. It was a great time and we saw lots of whales--Minke, Pilot and one Fin whale. At one point there was a pod of about 15 whales just cruising near the boat. There were quite a few gray seals playing in the water too. We... More

Just got back from our whaling cruise, and we enjoyed it even more than we expected. Saw lots of pilot whales, must have been at least 30 throughout the 3 hours. A few were very close to the boat, and the others were varying distances away. The captain did his best to get us where we could see them, and... More

Lots of shopping and eatery establishment, very small village. Excellent and great value for money. The commentery was very good fair size boat with about... More

We were very pleased with our trip here. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The best part was the boat. There was room to move around to see the whales. If you want to see whales go here!
