Whale Watching

The diverse waters off the Cabot Trail are abundant with marine life, making it one of the best locations in Nova Scotia to experience a close encounter. Say hello to the North Atlantic’s gentle giants on a charter. Bound over the surf by zodiac to get breathtakingly close to whales, dolphins, and seals. Cruise along our rugged shores to spy the seabirds and mammals that call our Island home.
