The zodiac ride was amazing and picturesque and worth the money on its own! We saw gannet, seals, and minke whales, too! The guide was very knowledgeable about the sea, and super friendly as well!

The captain was friendly but we did not see any whales on the tour. It was a little pricey at 49 CAD a person. Disappointing.

Kinnon was friendly, accommodating and very determined to find whales! We saw seals, puffins, eagles, a tuna, and a humpback! It is a zodiac so be prepared and dress warm, even on a sunny day.
