A great crew to go to for whale and wildlife watching! We took our kiddos and had a great time. We saw tons of whales and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. A must-do!

On a zodiac tour you are able to be closer to the water and can navigate closer to the island shore, and we certainly benefitted. On the water of Witless Bay you can see dozens of whales, mostly humpbacks, blowing air, surfacing and even breaching...More

The tour was really great. There were whales everywhere and to say a lot of birds would be a huge understatement. The captain was friendly and knowledgable. I appreciate the way he didn't chase the whales around. Once he sensed the whales had had enough...More
