Join us aboard the "Mister Matthew" as we search the coastal waters of the Bay of Fundy for Minke, Finback, Humpback and Northern Right Whales. We will also look for eagles, seals, harbour porpoises, puffins and various other marine life as we cruise throughout the many small islands along the way. Experience the famous Bay of Fundy tides. Departs from Head Harbour wharf on Campobello Island.

Captain Mackie and Robert are the best hosts for whale watching. They get right to the whales and also see eagles.
