Whale Watching

The Bay of Fundy is brimming with marine wildlife, and Nova Scotia’s Fundy Coast is one of the best places to experience it.

Each Spring and Summer a variety of whales, porpoises, seabirds and dolphins make their way back to the waters off Nova Scotia as part of their annual migration. And each year thousands of people head out on the water to witness it first hand.

There are many local tours and cruises available along the Digby Neck area ranging from Zodiac tours to private charters. In fact, some of the Interpreters who accompany you on the cruises are Marine Biologists who are studying the local eco-systems. Whale and seabird cruises are available from Digby, Brier Island, Tiverton, and Westport.
