Whale Watching in Nova Scotia
Booking a trip aboard a Whale watching tour should be at the top of your to-do list of activities when visiting Nova Scotia. Whale watching boat tours are found throughout the province, but the best whale watching opportunities are found along Cape Breton’s world famous Cabot Trail and alongside the Digby Neck area on Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy. Experience whales in their natural habitat as well as other Atlantic marine wildlife including seals, dolphins and sea birds too.

Whale Watching on the Bay of Fundy
The Bay of Fundy is a marine paradise because the waters of the bay are important feeding grounds for many whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea birds. Watch Humpbacks - the clowns of the sea - frolic and breech, marvel at the huge Finbacks, and meet the friendly Minke (pronounced "ming key”) whales. If you’re lucky, you might even spot Atlantic White Sided Dolphins or the North Atlantic right whale,one of the rarest whales in the world.
Cape Breton Whale Watching Tours
Hop aboard a whale watching cruise with a whale watch tour operator located along Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail to see pods of curious pilot and minke whales that are often drawn close to the boats. Hear them ‘sing’ by listening on a hydrophone in an equipt boat. In Pleasant Bay, make sure to visit the Whale Interpretive Centre.
