A celebratory weekend was beautifully enriched by the whale/bird watching tour we took with Mariner Tours. The experience was pleasant from start to finish. Booking was informative and easy. Reassured by COVID-19 precautions, we were able to relax and take in the total experience. We "communed" with mother and child humpbacks for over an hour - totally thrilling! With Penny's knowledge of seabirds, I could also delight in the region's puffins, gannets and shearwaters.

Summer 2020 prompted a staycation this year and I'm so glad for it! Brier Island was beautiful and taking the whale cruise with Mariner Cruises is something I will recommend to anyone visiting as well as local Nova Scotians too! Friends and I booked two rooms for the B&B plus whale watching package and enjoyed every minute. Penny and her crew were so friendly and knowledgeable and had such love and respect for all things ocean that you really felt privileged to be on a cruise with them.

Wow! What a beautifully amazing experience. From the crew, to the whales, it was fantastic. The crew members were engaged with the passengers the entire time. Offering knowledge on what we were seeing and making sure everyone was having a good time. It was our daughters 8th Birthday and one of the crew mates lead a Birthday song for her at the perfect time in front of a whale. It was so memorable, and so special. Should you have the opportunity and privilege to go with this crew, GO!
