Oshan Whale Watch Bay St. Lawrence

Finally, we spotted a pilot whale, and soon after that, the seas calmed and at least 20–30 pilot whales (and dolphins!) were nearby, many of them coming right up next to the boat.
This is a must do while in Nova Scotia and especially with Oshan Whale Watch!

Dixon's Zodiac Seafari Neil's Harbor
#89 of 401 Outdoor Activities in Nova Scotia
However, Captain Dixon with his eagle eye was able to spot a school of dolphins and an ocean sunfish (aka mola mola) and took the Zodiac boat up to both for an extended close-up.
I would definitely try this whale watching tour because Capt Dixon is very sincere in trying to find whales for you.
