#1 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
I would highly recommend North River Kayak tours to anyone doing the Cabot Trail!
They also offer instruction and guided tours so are perfect if you aren't experienced.
#2 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
Offers twice a day tours for an outing of 2 1/2 hours.. Most informative, interesting & detailed guide(Donaldo) with a sense of humor & she really wants to make sure you get the right pictures.
... of them so they fly in close to the boat to get the fish she toss's into the waters... up close with bald eagles!!!.... countless seals and so many others!! Breath taking!!! Wonderful 3 hours tour to bird island.
#3 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
... to get on the early Whale Watching tour with Captain Mark! Upon arriving at Pleasant Bay a day early, we drove around and saw that all of the whale watching tours had been cancelled for the day due to high winds.
The earlier tours spend more time scouting out where the whales are while the later tour reaps the reward by knowing where to go right away.
#4 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
We grabbed a tour of the Amoeba- a large schooner that tours the island waters daily.
Captain John's sailing ship, the Amoeba, is a perfect way to tour the waterfront and lake area around Baddeck.
Oshan Whale Watch Bay St. Lawrence
#5 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
It was a choppy day at sea so spotting the whales was definitely a challenge for our captain and the photographer that was assisting in the tour.
We went on a boat tour to watch the whales and other wildlife in the area (end of July 2016).
Bird Island Boat Tour Big Bras d'Or

The mate was a mighty sailin' lad, The Skipper brave and sure, Four passengers set sail that day, For a three hour tour, Captain Gordon took fine advantage of fair skies and a followin' sea for an exhilarating tou...
I found Captain Kerr's tour listed along with others but was drawn to the more intimate experience of a smaller sailboat and more of a personal guided tour of the area that Captain Kerr offered.

Wonderful experience with Cabot Discovery Tours.
Everyone visiting this beautiful part of the world, book a day out with Cabot Discovery Tours.
Captain Cox's Whale Watch Bay St. Lawrence
#11 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
I've been on his tour 4 times over the years and the best way to describe it is "the National Geographic of whale watch tours" Dennis took us to amazing points of land jutting out in the open water, into many beau...
Did a fair bit of research on whale watching tours in Cape Breton and in the end chose to go with Captain Cox in Bay Saint Lawrence.
#12 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
After 3 wonderful weeks criss-crossing Nova Scotia, PEI and NB, kids and adults agree - the Tales and Scales boat tour is an experience to remember and a family favourite!
I went on this marvelous tour the hosted by real fisherman and it was terrific fun and a wonderful learning experience.
#13 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
The next time hopefully by kayak but I am so happy that my friend and I lucked into The Pleasant Bay Zodiac Tours while going around the cabot trail this time.
The competitors in the area may be a bit cheaper, but we found this to be a very personalized tour and loved the fact that they exclusively offer zodiac tours.
Dixon's Zodiac Seafari Neil's Harbor
#14 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
I would definitely try this whale watching tour because Capt Dixon is very sincere in trying to find whales for you.
We saw 4 beautiful whales and enjoyed a very pleasant tour.

Our granddaughter was given the royal treatment and at the end of the tour we walked away with a lifelong memory of whales, seals, a wonderful vessel and a man who gave his all to make it happen!
Seal tour
#17 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
Overall—independent tours are priced higher than ship shore excursions—but when you spread the cost of the tour across 3-5 passengers, the cost differences are minor and the benefits are unparalleled.
This is a much better tour than the tours offered by our cruise line.
A Great Day Fishing Margaree Forks
#18 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
We highly recommend a guided tour with Jimmie Pedersen to anyone, beginners or experienced anglers, who want to have A Great Day Fishing on the beautiful Margaree River.
Guaranteed Whales Pleasant Bay

Her husband and the crew were great on the tour, very knowledgeable, friendly and informative.
... Capt, Richard was driving today however one of our Tour guides was also a Capt, Cal, Our other Tour guide Winston was great, After boarding they do a safety speech telling us in detail what to do if we must us...
Captain Zodiac Cheticamp
#20 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
I also appreciated the prompt email response I received when originally inquiring about the types of tours available.
Captain Wesley provided narration that tied in recent events and other points of interest, rather than the canned script that some such tours offer.
#21 of 42 Tours in Cape Breton Island
The downside of the 9am tours is that all the whale watching boats have to search the whales.
Several tours per day.

We booked a private tour at our cruise ship stop in Sidney and spent a very interesting day on Cape Breton Island with Don of Blackwood tours.
Robert met us at the cruise ship dock and walked us over to our van where our driver was waiting and ready to take us on a tour of the Cabot Trail.
