We took our US visitors to Brier Island for an unfogettable whale watching adventure. We cannot say enough about this wonderful experience, from beginning to end. Penny and her team were incredible, interested in where people were travelling from, extremely informative, and so accommodating. We were so fortunate to see a baby humpback whale, cavorting in the water with his mom, and the first breach of the 2018 season. Before our tour was over we had the great (and unusual) privilege of seeing seven whales altogether in one area. We will never forget this humbling and truly awe inspiring day. Thank you to Amy for sharing so much knowledge of the whale's ecosystem, and for the interesting overview on our return trip (we could see the children on board really enjoyed this educational session). Also thank you for the hot drinks and (for those who did not dress for the open seas), the consideration for comfort with offers of blankets. Remember, when you take this journey, it is cool on the ocean, you are out in open waters on the Bay of Fundy. Bring warm layers so you can spend all your time and energy focusing on observing these majestic creatures. Thanks to everyone, we and our guests will be talking about this day for years to come!

Tour guide was excellent. She provided much information about the bay and the whales. It took two hours before we saw a whale but the crew persisted. Eventually we were greeted by two hump backs who gave us a fantastic display for about an hour. The hump backs were playful and performed a bit of a show. Seeing whales in the natural environment is a truest amazing experience. I would defiantly recommend Mariner cruises.

Myself and three friends were visiting the Digby area for the long weekend and signed up for one of your whale watching cruises. It was my first time whale watching and I was not disappointed in the slightest!! We saw many beautiful, friendly, happy whales, flipping their tales around, breaching, showing off and dancing for us! The whales were a beautiful wonder to behold, in fact every time I think about it now I tear up a little, they were just so spectacular. Penny and Amy and the others on the crew were knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. The hot drinks and snacks on the way home were a lovely touch. I thought I had lost my iphone on the boat and when I called Penny the next day she searched the boat high and low and got back to me (luckily it was located elsewhere!). Excellent experience and top notch customer service. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the natural wonders of Nova Scotia. Thank you!
