Really enjoyed the wildlife, our guide was very well informed. Unfortunately they aren't able to control the weather so what started warm and sunny soon became foggy and cold. Still had a good time and the staff was really friendly. It was worth the money

Tour guide was very knowledgeable. He included history of the area, back ground if residents including past and present, explained formation of area, explained aquatic mamals etc. Highly recommend. Can be very chilly. Prepare and dress warm.

I loved this tour. The guide was full of interesting local information and was funny too. Bring some warm clothes to put on in open water. The temp when we left was 69 but when we hit open water you could see your breath. Some people with small children had on shorts...poor babies were beet red by the time we headed back. Beautiful scenery, we plan to do it again when we come back.

My sister and I went on the Naturalist tour on Sept. 17, 2020. The weather was perfect! We got seats on the upper deck, where some seats had been roped off to allow for social distancing. We saw lots of wildlife, including an eagle, seals, eider ducks and harbor porpoises. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The price was reasonable ($30 after a $3 senior discount) and well worth it for the two hours we spent on the water.

It was a beautiful,sunny weekend and we chose to book the 3 1/2hr sightseeing cruise with Acadian Tours on Sunday afternoon. It was the highlight of our 4 days in the area. Well worth the money.

That Somes Sound Fjord tour is truly one of the prettiest trips we do (in my opinion as well). Thank you for coming along with us - and for taking time to send a review! Diane Smith
