I took my child and elderly parent to go on a whale watching tour with Captain Riddle. It was recommended by the owner of the place we stayed at. We booked it the day before and everything was set. We waited an hour past the time he said he would pick us up, only to find out the boat that... More

Similar to another review, we drove up from Portland to go whale watching, visit the eastern most point in the US and enjoy the drive. Unfortunately our reservations never made it onto the calendar even though we followed up 2 days prior. While Capn Riddles did seem very apologetic, it was pretty disheartening. If you visit I would not plan... More

Great day on the water! It was the best day of the summer. We arrived early and he was ready with a smile and eager to help us load. We luckily saw several whales, porpoise, Eagles and seals, he would stop for great photo opportunities and the boat was perfect with its cover to keep us shaded from the sun.... More

Already reviewed elsewhere but he deserves a second ..... We appreciated a small boat that could get up close to the whales and could turn on a dime to follow them. He really tried hard to find me the fin back, 2nd largest whale but it was no where to be found. He could not have tried harder. I'd go... More

We had a fantastic experience with Captain Riddle with a personalized boat cruise on the Bay of Fundy. We had the boat to ourselves and got to participate in spotting whales and also got to see bald eagles, seals, and dolphins and even did some fishing for mackerel. I highly recommend a cruise with Captain Riddle and a visit to... More
