We headed for the east coast for our honeymoon. On our way back home to Ontario we stopped in to St Andrews and decided to head out with Island Quest marine whale and wildlife cruises for a whale watching adventure. So glad we did. We saw a bunch of whale,seals,porpoises and bald eagles. Staff was extremely friendly and told us all about the sea life and the area. Would definitely recommend anyone go for a cruise with these wonder people. If we get back out their way another whale watch will be on the top of our list aswell as a shark fishing trip.

Had an amazing trip and seen lots of Whales. Boat is clean, well taken care of and works great. The lady working in the office and the crew on the boat were awesome. Can't wait to go again

The staff was sadly rather rude to us. Apparently their boat had hit a rock and they needed to cancel our full charter. They made a mistake refunding our credit card and acted like it was our mistake. Disappointed that the customer isn't really that much of a priority. i be reviewed this before in greater detail but mysteriously it's been taken down.

We took our daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren (ages 11 and 9) on the Island Quest whale watch on Sunday, September 4. We were out for 3 1/2 hours, saw fin backs and a humpback sleeping on the surface for over 15 minutes before she dove and gave us a tail wave. The trip was wonderful! The crew helpful and informative. We could not have asked for a better experience!
