Add To Plan

Experience the scenic beauty and marine life of the Great North Atlantic during this nature and whale-watching adventure in Nova Scotia.

Depart the pier with your guide for the brief walk to the Tall Ships Quay. Upon arrival, you will embark the Haligonian III, a whale-watching vessel with a fully-licensed bar, canteen and washroom facilities. This well-equipped boat offers passengers a choice of decks; a lower section enclosed and heated, and an open-air upper deck.

As you cruise along the coastlines of George's Island and McNab's Island, your guide will inform you about the wonderful sights and wildlife you will be passing and answer any questions you may have. Upon reaching the Great North Atlantic, you may be able to catch a glimpse of some whales - the world's largest mammals, help the captain and crew bring up live lobster traps and view an onboard demonstration of touch tanks, featuring examples of local marine life.

Following your nature and whale-watching adventure, you will be returned back to the Tall Ships Quay and then walk back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes a small amount of walking. The tour is available to guests who utilize a non-motorized collapsible wheelchair, can make their own way on and off the tour vessel and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. There are 12 stairs to negotiate to access the lower deck. Those who are prone to motion sickness should take the necessary precautions. Weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Guests should be prepared for the possibility of rain.
