  • 10/10 What an experience! Crew was super friendly and helpful! First trip was a 4:30 booking and sadly, there was lots of fog. Not the crews fault at all. We ended up seeing one juvenile humpback (which I thought was awesome!) but then Peggy (the owner) said that since it wasn't good enough, anybody who wanted to come back in the morning could. So we did! And it was amazing. Two humpbacks super close to us, one went under the boat. Got amazing pictures (not uploaded yet). The crew worked very hard to find us whales and were very courteous and friendly. 10/10 would do again!
  • Went out with Mike, Penny, Amy and the rest of the crew today, and it totally exceeded our expectations. Not only professional and smart, these people are absolutely committed to providing the top experience for all of us! Whales, education, and friendliness. Topped off with hot beverages and cookies on the way back to port. Awesome!
  • What an incredible team of professionals! Even though we had a tour on a really foggy day, they still worked hard to find whales and keep us entertained with information about whales. Despite the fact that they can't control the weather or wild animals, they're very good at what they do! After searching for an extra hour and a half (just for us to have a good experience), they found us a young whale to follow and take pictures of with a beautiful sunset in the background!
  • We have gone whale and bird watching more than 30 times over the last four years with never a disappointing tour. The owner Penny, captain Chris, and crew Clayton Amy and Bethany are exceptional in their love knowledge and skills in finding amazing showings of humpbacks, minke, finn, and once the rarest sighting of the endangered North Atlantic Right whale!!! The care taken to provide the safest ride and the great respect for the whales is second to none. They are always entertaining and share information about whales and birds throughout the tour. We highly recommend them.
  • One of the best experiences we've ever had! Begins with a detailed explanation of how to get there (you will need it!), continues with clear signs and a neat office on Brier Island. The ship is all clean and runs smooth. But most of all, our guide, Amy was simply fantastic! Her compassion, respect and enthusiasm for whales (and all living things, for that matter) is contagious! She made it not only enjoyable but also educational. Lastly, we were lucky to have whales come so close so many times. They literally gazed at us with curiosity.
