We had to reschedule due to the hurricane, and it wasn't a problem. Captain, first mate, and land rep were all courteous and very professional. Would definitely recommend!

A really enjoyable hour going to see seals, fascinating to listen to Abby. I think it’s various wildlife at different times of the year.

My wife and I did a 2 hour fishing charter and the fishing grounds are right off shore. We were fishing within 10 minutes of arriving and we caught fish non-stop for 2 hours. We had double headers and caught some huge Cod, mackerel, pollack. I wasn't sure how much action we would get in two hours, but we were exhausted after catching that amount of fish. It was amazing and I do recommend for anyone who likes fishing

All around great time! Abby was very knowledgeable about the area and the history of Peggys Cove and West Dover she is a multi generational commercial fisher person and was fun to talk to Capt Gary let people steer the boat and was pleasant to talk to. We saw several seals and different birds the area is truly beautiful!

The trip was very nice and the staff extremely knowledgeable about the area and the fishing communities. The water was a bit rough, but felt safe despite the churning water. Got to see some seals and some local birds, but unfortunately did not see any other wildlife due to overcast skies. Had a lot of photo opportunities which are only possible when on the water.

Loved the ride in this beautiful area. Saw seals, puffins and all kinds of other sea birds. Gary the captain and Abbey the first mate were wonderful and knowledgeable about it all. It was great to be offshore along this lovely coast!

My wife and I were staying in Nova Scotia for a week visiting from Ontario. We were driving from Halifax to Lunenburg and while we have been to Peggy's cove before, we felt we needed to stop in on our way by. We were just planning on popping in and out, spending not more than 20 or 30 minutes before getting lunch.

Then my wife saw the sign for the boat tours and our plans changed. My wife loves taking pictures, and the opportunity to get a different perspective of the rocks and light house was too much to pass up.

I initially was not thrilled at all about our plans changing! (I'm not as excited about taking photos as my wife is!)

Well, I hate to admit it, but my wife was right and I was wrong! This boat tour was one of the highlights of our whole two week vacation and week long stay in Nova Scotia.

While photography isn't my thing, I love learning about places and hearing personal stories about life in the places we visit.

Captain Brian got us into some amazing spots (and even let my wife take the controls for a bit) and my wife's photos were great.

And for me, first mate Abby made the tour. Learning about the West Dover community from someone who grew up there, learning about what a real Maritime fishing community is like, hearing her first hand experiences as a fisher and growing up and living in West Dover was incredible. She's a great story teller, has a wealth of knowledge and was one of the best tour guides I've ever had.

I've never been so happy to tell my wife I was wrong!

Fun experience. Captain and mate were friendly and got us back to shore safely through some pretty choppy waters.

My husband and I went on July 24th, Captain Brian and Abby were awesome!!! They were very personable and made the trip well worth it. We did the deep sea fishing and my husband caught some great fish! Even thou I was terribly sea sick we still had a great time. I highly recommend this excursion while out at Peggy’s Cove.
