Sail with the whales of Canada's world famous Bay of Fundy. The waters around Grand Manan Island are home to many whales every summer from June to September. Lots of whales and seabirds and seals and sharks and great coastal scenery, too!

We've enjoyed Whales-n-Sails for more than ten years now, and have a different, pleasurable experience each time. In early September 2015, our four hour trip on the 60-foot sailing ketch Elsie Menota featured an array of sea birds, and close-by viewings of finback, humpback, and...More

Trip was so amazing!!! The fog hindered it a little bit so it took longer to see the whales, but what can you do?? I'm so happy we even saw a shark and some seals too!!! I would def recommend this tour to everyone.
