Great experience with captain John and his crew on a beautiful vessel and day. Learned about the boat, some history on the area, up close and personal to eagles and bell homestead. Very relaxing couple of hours on the salty waters!!

The ride was one and a half hours. We saw eagles, a harbor seal, and cormorants. We also got a great look at A. Bells summer house. The crew entertained us throughout the ride. Very nice time on the boat.

There were no pets on our sail. I sort of doubt it, but you should call or email them directly about it!

Yes I was there in Sept.14 It was 25 dollars Canadian plus HST at 13% Yes we also tipped. The owner/captain gives the tips to the young people that help him. It is a really nice time.
