About Dixon's Zodiac Seafari
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 aboard the "733 Hurricane", the same type of vessel used by the Canadian Coast Guard. This is where your coastal, whale and marine life adventure will begin.

We did enjoy our excursion, the captain was very good, the zodiac more comfortable then the previous 1 we were on in Brier Island (although many more whales there) , and the coastal scenery was so beautiful. our kids were disappointed in the product,although we did see a Minke whale, although not easy to watch or get a photo of, and some beautiful scenery.

Lowell was a great tour guide for this whale watching tour. He does his best to find the whales location so his guests can experience the best sighting possible. We were fortunate to see a Fin Whale today. It was nice being out on the water.

Fantastic trip- captain Lowell Dixon worked really hard for the 11 passengers- up and down the bay til he found some Minke whales-4 in all, and some harbour porpoises, some huge seals and seabirds too. Great early season trip, especially positive after a non event elsewhere in Bay St Lawrence the day before. Totally recommend.

My gf and i made the treck up to northern cape breton to sea some whales. What a beautiful drive first of all up the cabot trail but thats another story We met the couple at the dock who run the exciting whale tour. They are extremely welcoming and friendly. The boat is a 24 foot zodiac . Just the perfect way to rip about the ocean searching for all types of sea animals. We ended up seeing grey seals, harbour porpoises, blue fin tuna and lots of birds! Best of all a mink whale showed it self. Not for very long but enough for us to enjoy the moment and beauty of the wild beast! We enjoyed every minute and couldnt ask for a better company to have dealt with. The captain knows his stuff and openly answers all questions. Cheers to you and also thanks for the great recommendation for route 19! We are sipping a stout as we type this! Much love for cape breton from london ontario

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 pointed out. We also had the pleasure of seeing Beluga whales.A very enjoyable trip. I couldn't fault them.
