My family has lived in Northern Cape Breton for 7 generations, so I am quite familiar with the region. I am a tourism expert serving on volunteer tourism related committees for both the Cabot Trail and Cape Breton Island. Since 1998 my father has operated Oshan Whale Watch, making me biased towards, but an expert of, whales and a multitude of coastal wildlife. When I travel, I look for owner-operator experiences because meeting new people is just as important as visiting new places.
