“The best whalewatching tour ever”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

It was an awesome show presented by 2 adult and a baby whale during the last whalewatching tour. The crew was very competent and Penny Graham could answer all questions. We recommend this company also for the good service on board.

“Awesome show by Mother Nature”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We went out with Penny and her crew for the last cruise of the year. We were not out for more that 30 minutes when the whales showed and put on a fabulous performance. The "baby" was so close to the vessel that you could have touched him. He rolled and slapped his fins, never leaving our side. Momma humpback demonstrated her power every once and a while by rolling over and letting the water fly every time she slapped the water surface. Penny spends time with everyone on board to answer any questions you may have and offers hot chocolate and cookies. Don't miss opportunity while in the Digby area.

“Accomondation and Whale Watching Tour”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Our family went to Brier Island on the Labor Day weekend in 2013. While there we stayed at the Bay of Fundy Inn. The B.and B. was beautiful, and very clean. the hostess, Penny was gracious. It included a continental breakfast had all you could ask for. While there we went on Penny's Mariner Cruises whale watching. It was an amazing experience. Penny and her staff were informative about the whales, and could answer any and all questions. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone. It is well worth it.

“A Whale of a Time!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This was the highlight of our trip to the Maritime Provinces. The owner herself accompanied us as I understand she always does. She was so friendly and gracious - not to mention she knew all about whales and sea birds. She was full of information about whales and sea birds that we found very interesting. She directed her pilot to go further than they had all season just so we could be sure to see whales. And see them we did - even a mother and her "baby" (25-foot)!

“Most fun you can have standing up!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Earlier this week we went on the Mariner Whale Cruise out of Brier Island. I had heard a lot about these cruises but was not expected to be so overwhelmed by the experience. Penny the owner and the ships captain clearly have mastered the art of finding and getting close to these huge sea creatures. You could feel their vibrations, feel the spray from their blows and actually touch their huge pectoral fins at times as they performed for us for a couple of hours. It was truly an unforgettable experience made even more meaningful by Penny and her crew who have a great love for and experience with the whales. We will be back!
