From the historic shores of Saint Andrews, across the green-blue waters of the Bay of Fundy, beyond where the Old Sow whirlpool churns and the East Quoddy lighthouse shines, live some of the last great wonders of the world. Yes! We have feeding whales, playful porpoise, soaring eagles, sunning seals, sometimes Puffins and more. Much more! Incredible tides rush between the islands, whilst you ‘zip’ over the waters and experience the fullest of the ocean salt air and Bay of Fundy wonders.
Successful encounters with whales exceeds 95% on your trip (99% in 2018!!). Of course we stop for all the sights and for guide information! Our high speed vessel provides opportunities to see whales further off shore (season and weather conditions depending).
We have extended the exclusive VIP zodiac tours to approximately 2.5 hours to ensure you experience all that the Bay has to offer that day. You can relax and enjoy the extra time with the whales and other wild life.
Your licensed captain will provide ongoing wildlife interpretation. Hot chocolate and snack provided. Our zodiac has a private bathroom for your convenience if needed.
Ride in comfort with Individual forward facing shock absorption seating (Seaspension ™ seating!). There is also a back rest on these seats! The owner worked previously as a physical therapist and recommended the suspension seating for injury prevention.
Your hosts Joanne and Robert Carney purchased the 72-foot ‘Jolly Breeze’ Tall Ship in 2004 and have taken out over 100,000 guests on whale watching and sailing adventures departing from Saint Andrews NB. We expanded in 2016 with our new high speed jet drive vessel. Previously used as an FBI boat, this 33-foot aluminum hulled Zodiac Hurricane is capable of speeds up to 40 MPH with dual 315 HP jet drives (630 HP!) Speed will be adjusted for sea conditions, guest comfort and wildlife viewing. Experience the heart throbbing excitement of high speed adventure and Bay of Fundy whales and wildlife.
