Whale watching and coastal tours off northern Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Nestled in the northeast corner of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, lies the quaint fishing village of Neil's Harbour, just two minutes off the Cabot Trail. Let the lighthouse guide you to Dixons Zodiac Seafari. Prepare to have a smooth, exhilarating ride aboard the "733 Hurricane", the same type of vessel used by the Canadian Coast Guard. This is where your Cape Breton coastal whale watch and marine life tour will begin.

You will embark on a two hour journey where you may experience close encounters with such species such as Minke whales, Humpback whales, Pilot whales,Fin whales,dolphins, porpoises, sunfish and seals. On this part of the Cape Breton coastline you may have a frequent encounter with such species as the Blue whale, Northern Right whale and the Killer whale.

In these northern Nova Scotia waters, around the first part of August, the Leatherback Turtle arrives in search of food. Particularly fond of jelly fish, these are magnificent creatures to watch in their natural habitat.

So come join us to explore the beautiful Cape Breton Coastline from the ocean and enjoy the marine life that flourishes here. It's a Nova Scotia adventure you will never forget.

Look for the lighthouse to guide you.
