Brier Island Whale Watching

It seems that the best place to see whales is the Bay of Fundy-Brier Island. Arrive in Halifax on the 23rd (6 pm). Want to see whales, tour Halifax, see Mahone Bay, Peggys Cove. Would love to stay at B&Bs everywhere except Halifax.....Can we do it all?? Recommendations for Tour company, accommodations, scenic route would be so helpful.

Thank you

I havn't gone on this whale watch tour yet but i am planning to go with this one when I do. Check the website for maps and links that may answer a lot of other questions.

Whoever you choose, don't go whale watching from Halifax, it is a waste of money.

Thank you very much for your advice. I am going to give them a telephone call today to inquire about their sightings...if they have a log. I will post my results.
