Such a lovely experience. The people were super friendly, and a complete bonus was that they had half en eye on our 4 year old while we were around the whales. We only went 10 mins out and found 6 humpbacks, then spent the next three hours following them. Amazing!

We booked our whale watching adventure with our hotel room at Digby Pines, which was convenient since all the whale watching was booked up when we arrived. This tour was also recommended by Greg at Gael Tours, so I knew it would be good and it was. We had a beautiful sunny afternoon out on the water with the Captain... More

Wasn't the greatest day to go out , thick fog, but don't let that stop you from going out. A little mixup with reservation but Captain Craig sorted it out. Great voyage, saw lots of humpbacks, Dolphins and a couple of seals closeup. Crew very knowledgeable, met a lot of people from the USA and Canada. A great experience, would... More

This Tour is NOT on a small inflatable type boat. It is on a 40 plus foot boat. The Tour was AWESOME! We saw MANY Whales, some almost within touching distance. The Whales surfaced near our boat, they dove, and basically showed off for us. GREAT trip. I recommend this Tour with no reservations!

We called up at 24 hours notice and got on a trip which successfully located these amazing creatures which at one stage passed under the boat. There were a number of locals on the trip who from the outset were confident of sighting hump back whales over a 30 min period during a three hour trip.

Had a great time on this tour... even though I ended up being a little green around the gills. We saw several whales with the opportunity for several photos. The Captain and crew were pleasant and knowledgeable. The trip to the area where the whales were finally found was about an hour but the weather was pleasant, if a bit... More

We couldn't have asked for better weather! Beautiful sunshine and a calm sea of glass. We saw at least 10 humpbacks, dolphins, and seals. It was a fabulous trip, and Craig and his crew are stellar.

We managed to see several whales up very close over this 3-4 hour tour. The crew was very enthusiastic and shared lots of interesting information about the whales we saw. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and I would highly recommend this excursion. The ride there and back was very peaceful and watching the whales was... More
