Nestled in the northeast corner of Cape Breton Island lies the quaint fishing village of Neil’s Harbour. Just two minutes off of the Cabot Trail, let the lighthouse guide you to Dixon's Zodiac Seafari. Prepare to have a smooth, exhilarating ride...more

Lowell and Stacey looked after us really well. I have always been nervous on the open sea but I was seated near to Lowell so he could make sure I was ok. We were taken all round the bay and various places of interest were...More
Although this business was excellent for communication on and off season, it seems that in addition to seals and sea birds, you will likely only see one or two whales if you are lucky. We only saw birds. Our tour was very rough making two...More
We enjoyed our outing with Lowell on the zodiak. Although we didn't get to see any whales, we saw a huge pod of dolphins which included some babies. There were two babies jumping together and playing which was adorable. Some swam right under the zodiak...More
Fantastic experience with Lowell on his zodiac. We saw some Minke whales and a really good sighting at the very end of the trip. He kept us out there a bit longer to see it. My youngest are 7 year old twins and their imagination...More

Fishing during the whale-watching trip is not possible as the captain has to be alert to where the whales etc are surfacing, and then adjust position/location accordingly. The zodiac is a nimble craft for this. On a separate... More
Fishing during the whale-watching trip is not possible as the captain has to be alert to where the whales etc are surfacing, and then adjust position/location accordingly. The zodiac is a nimble craft for this. On a separate trip, I would imagine that you could charter a vessel for just fishing. It was late in the day when we visited, so we did not have an opportunity to check out possibilities for fishing - we just ate 'em up at the Chowder House!
