Take a journey out on to the ocean with an expert naturalist guide to an area teeming with marine wildlife: the waters off Brier Island at the far western end of Digby Neck. Often humpback, fin and minke whales, along with harbour porpoises, are sighted here, as well as some dolphin species at certain times of the year. The endangered North Atlantic right whale is most commonly sighted in late summer and autumn, but a host of seabirds are seen at all times. There is choice of either taking a comfortable covered boat or, for the more adventurous, a faster zodiac. Whichever you choose you are sure to have a fantastic wildlife experience. The whole trip lasts around two to two and a half hours.

This trip departs from Westport on Brier Island, 90 minutes west of Digby and involves two short connecting ferry hops. Ferries depart regularly and can not be pre-booked.
