This was by far one of the best whale watching trips I've ever been on. Such a reasonable rate (they should charge more!) We saw 2 pods of whales, seals, eagles and the white rock. The captain and his first mate were so experienced at...More

Thanks to the Captain! He was hilarious, informative, and fun. Saw so many pilot whales, seals, and eagles! The view of the landscape from a boat was just as amazing as the whales! 100% would recommend!! Thanks so much!

We wanted to go whale watching, but didn’t have a reservation. So when we showed up, at first we were told no. But after a bit of conversation with Captain Fraser (from the Meat Cove Frasers, not the Antigonish, we were told :) ), we...More
