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.

Larger zodiac type vessel: 36 feet, this vessel allows for more space for our guests, improved seating comfort with back rests and space for a private bathroom on board.

Safety:  Additional safety include the life rafts on all vessels, (you will note that smaller zodiac vessels in the Bay may not carry life rafts).  This affords maximum safety when traveling further offshore where the whales may be located that day.  We also have the added onboard Certified life jackets for adults and children,  positioning locator devices and certified Captains.

Successful encounters with whales exceeds 95%.  Experience the excitement of the high speed on the way out and back from the whale feeding area and of course we stop for all the sights and for guide information. Our high speed vessels provide opportunities to see whales further off shore (season and weather conditions depending).

Longer tours:  The tours are approximately 2.5 hours in duration allowing you to have the extra time to relax and enjoy the whale sightings.  The all important bathroom on board our two high speed vessels allows us to spend more time with the whales plus ensure you experience all that the Bay has to offer that day.

Ride in improved comfort Spacious forward facing bench seating with backrests and 4″ cushioning.  The owner, Joanne, worked previously as a physical therapist and recommended the improved comfort seating.

Bathroom:  Both of our motor vessels have a private bathroom on board which provides you that extra reassurance in case it is needed.
