We booked the Zodiac whale watching tour and we would recommend it if you have a need for speed. There is the option of the Tall Ship tour which would be more for the leisurely crowd. The Zodiac captain was very knowledgeable and knew his way around the area. It was cold on the water so the supplied survival suits... More

Could not have asked for a better experience! The whales came to us and it was amazing! They were so close we could have touched them! FYI - whale breath stinks 🐋

Dress for the cold. The Atlantic is chilly. I'm a local and I took a date to this nice attraction once. They offer a hot soup and beverage while you are aboard and the crew is entertaining. It is quite an experience: whale watching aboard a beautiful tall ship.

Despite the damp and rainy weather, the crew kept us dry with good fowl weather gear, entertained, and informed (our marine biologist guide was a delight). . .and well fed on their very fine pea soup. Saw Finbacks and Minkies and lots more. . . .Would definitely do this one again.

Wow! What a ride! I was a bit hesitant to venture out on this type of boat having to don a full body suit/flotation device (not required but available for your comfort) but it was exhilarating, fun and safe. The salt water and wind were mother natures facials! Alas we saw lots of right whales. Large, elegant mammals gracefully breaching... More

Thank you for joining us and for the review of the new high speed jet boat. Glad that you found the trip exhilarating, safe and that you enjoyed the captains good wit. The Right Whales are endangered with only 500 left in the world and a special lifetime experience to see. So glad that we could share that with you. More

This was a fun excursion, with a professional staff who took care of everyone on board. We did see whales, and no seasickness was experienced. We appreciated that this was more than a "whale watch" trip, as there was educational and entertainment time as well. Soup was delish! Thank you so much for a memorable experience!
