Our friendly and helpful reception set the tone for the whole trip. Our guide kept us informed, and walked around during quiet periods to chat and answer questions. Captain Chris seemed to know nust where to find the whales, and how to stay close. We watched from close quarters several pods of humpbacks, and saw some dolphins further away.

We booked the combo Fundy Inn/ Whale Boat online for $175 ($133US) This includes a room for the night at the Fundy Inn with breakfast and a 4 hour Whale Tour, for 2 people. The Fundy Inn was spotless, breakfast was good and the bathrooms are shared but it worked out. Penny answered every question before we asked. She was... More

The weather could've been nicer, but it definitely did not hinder the overall experience. Penny was very knowledgeable about the humpback whales, even referred to them by names. We were entertained by these magnificent mammals for 2 hours. Our captain Jim was also very knowledgeable and was eager to please the children that had questions about his equipment/navigational system. I... More

We booked this at the last minute as we were driving there from Halifax and the operator was very helpful giving us directions on how to get there. They were able to tell us what time we had to be at the first ferry so we would make it in time. The crew was very knowedgable about the whales and... More

We're so glad we made the drive out to Brier Island. Penny, Amy, Captain Jim and all the rest of the staff on board were fantastic! They enthusiastically shared all they know about the sea life. We were lucky to see 5 humpback whales at once (a rare sighting as we've been told they usually travel alone), as well as... More

I was nervous about this since seasickness is an issue for me but, in spite of not-quite-calm seas, it was ALL good. No, it was all GREAT! Humpbacks performed for us right by the side of the boat. Penny and Amy were amazing spotters and interpreters of the what, why's, and how's of whale behavior. There was plenty of railing... More

OMG this was an amazing experience! If you want to see whales this is the best tour! Dress warm, it was 75F on land but about 50F at sea. I loved it and would do it again
