My sister and I took the Plankton, Periwinkles and Predators tour. Educational and fun. Greg is charming, humorous and very, very knowledgable. A wonderful unique experience exploring the ocean floor in the Bay of Fundy during low tide. Highly recommended!!

Highly recommend the Plankton, Periwinkles and Predators tour. Greg was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The walk down the cliff is moderately challenging for older people but Greg takes it slow and is very careful. Great for all ages!!

My husband and I took part in the town tour that was offered during the Tall Ships festival. Very interesting to learn more about the area. Greg Turner is a born teacher and I highly recommend taking the opportunity to learn from him.

Spent a few hours being shown around the town by Greg Turner. He was friendly, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to spend some time with. It was just me and my wife so we felt truly pampered.
