“A whale if a boat trip”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

We went out on a 3 hour whale watch at the end of September. Between the Old Sow whirlpool, the scenic islands, and the abundant wildlife, the Bay of Fundy was truly remarkable and the captain and crew were obviously as enthused about the sights as we were, even at the end of the season. This trip beat the overcrowded catamaran in Bar Harbor hands down. We saw way more: porpoises, seals, bald eagles galore, and both minke and finback whales, all without having to pry our way to a railing, and the old schooner had more charm as well.

“It was OK”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Captain and his crew were certainly enthusiastic. Unfortunately, we went on a light wind day and they ran on diesel the whole trip. I would likely have taken a smaller boat like a lobster boat or charter size had I known this. Still, an interesting time; saw some whales at a distance. An improvement would be a bit of formal narration from one of the crew. If you weren't sitting next to them you would miss a great deal.

“Would do this again.”
Reviewed 10 August 2012 via mobile

We had a great time. Had never ridden on a schooner before. Unique. We saw whales, porpoise, seals, and many types of birds. The only thing that I wish could have been better was hearing the experts. They were very knowledgable, but the wind made it hard to hear. However, they would answer any question and repeat anything so you could get any information you missed. We would do this again if we get to Eastport.
