For a chance to see some of nature's most majestic creatures in wild Nova Scotia, take a trip on Ocean Explorations Whale Cruises. Expert crew man the daily tours, launching into the open sea on large rigid hull inflatable boats aiming to show you as much of the Nova Scotian wildlife as possible. Marine biologist Tom Goodwin leads the trip, which will take you from the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, to the ledges off Brier Island, and as far as Digby Neck, all significant feeding areas for many species of whale, dolphin and porpoise. Wrap up warm and take your camera for breathtaking photos. Weather will dictate your trip and remember these are wild animals, so there's no guarantees of a sighting.

  • If I can give zero stars I would.... Worst ride Horrible captain ... Yelling at people for getting sea sick no compassion My mother of 50 years old got sea sick and the captain decided to yell and get angry for almost puking on boat ... Nothing is worse than seeing your mom on her knees sick and barely conscious and have a little captain yell and continue the ride for another hour like no one mattered Worst could've happened is that she got sick on board and it can be cleaned but people's well being isn't as important My mother in law 60 years old and dad 60 years old Had bruises and back injuries and were hurt for 6 weeks later.. they make you sign those wavers not out of formality but because you're actually very likely to get hurt One of the worst experiences of my life The trip started with the captain not knowing where to go .... And getting irritated when a passenger didn't point out where the whales were I spoke to their office later to complain ...their excuse was that the captain was having a bad day
  • What an amazing experience! Staff were friendly and informative! Will be back some day!
