  • Not large but inexpensive. I think the best use for this center is to be used in conjunction with a whale watching trip in order to remember why we do conservation now. Trips leave not more than 500 feet away in the harbour and i think going to this small center first would be a good plan. It did teach me more about whales then i knew before which is a sign of a good stop.
  • The interpretive center was a great little spot for a quick break while driving around the Cabot trail. Learnt some new information about whales and our conservation efforts. Would definitely be a great introduction to a whale sightseeing ride, as there are some available right next door.
  • Must go to if you're doing a whale viewing. Worthwhile to go just to learn about these amazing creatures. Knowledge staff and lots of souvenirs.
  • Small and simple place. It was filled with some interesting stuff. The cost was low but it doesn't take more than an hour to go through.
  • I like whales :^)
