Being my first time whale watching, Penny and her crew were fantastic. We saw a Mother and Calf and they were very playful. They came very close to the boat, and breached multiple times. Only downside was the fog and sea sickness, so not for...More

From Digby, you need to count with 1.5 hours to get to Brier Island as you will get 2 Ferries to get there. You just follow the street down the Digby Neck. We were there a 23feet Mobile Home without any problem.

Our tour lasted 3.5 hours. It was $49 per adult. The water was a bit choppy but only 1 person got queasy. If you are prone to seasickness I'd suggest bonnine or Dramamine and you'll be fine. It's such an amazing tour!
