This was one of my top three favorite things on our trip to Cape Breton Island. I'll start by saying we did see whales. (Yay!) But I would have been happy even if we hadn't. The scenery around the top side of the island is...More

This was my second whale watching trip. Both experiences have been outstanding. This sea captain knows the territory and the animal habits and habitats. We saw Bald Eagles, seals, and pods of pilot whales.
