Nature & Whale Watching Cruise from Halifax

On the Nature & Whale Watching Cruise from Halifax, you'll travel to where the Atlantic Ocean meets the cliffs of Chebucto Head at the mouth of Halifax Harbour.

The open ocean awaits! You'll delight in the opportunity to see species of minke whale, fin whale, dolphin, seals, tuna, sunfish and a variety of seabirds. The crew will even pull up a lobster trap and teach you how to handle a lobster, snapping claws and all, and explain just how these intriguing crustaceans live and thrive. You'll also get a chance to feed the birds; they are looking forward to your visit!
