Fiddlin Whale Tours Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

Category: Activity
Welcome to Fiddlin Whale Tours, a unique aquatic adventure located in Pleasant Bay, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia... on the world-famous Cabot Trail!

Rain or shine, our clean, safe and comfortable boat offers first class relaxation, while you enjoy the fresh air and exquisite coastal scenery at Pleasant Bay. Enjoy an exclusive whale tour with Cape Breton style Celtic music!

For your convenience, we offer four daily tours throughout the summer season (June through October)... 10am, 12noon, 2pm and 4pm. Sunrise, sunset and private tours are also available by request.

Each Fiddlin Whale Tour guest will receive a FREE whale-watcher certificate to take home as a souveneir of your adventure!

Fiddlin Whale Tours is a friendly, well-established family business, offering an unparalleled opportunity to discover the intriguing marine life flourishing in the waters off northern Cape Breton.

The experienced father-and-son team of Stan and Kinnon have long been recognized in tourism circles throughout Nova Scotia for operating the most popular whale tour in Cape Breton!

Little wonder! The MacKinnons are fifth and sixth generation descendants of the first Scottish pioneers to settle this area. Their unique approach to whale watching has brought together the tradition of Celtic music and a matchless splendour of nature!

Captain Stan, a local historian, musician, former teacher and fisherman, was recently referred to in Coastal Living Magazine:

People along the [Cabot] trail had told us. \"If you want to see whales, visit Stan MacKinnon.\" Stan melds his love of fiddling with his whale-watching business. A while back, he straddled the bow of his boat and played his fiddle. Pilot whales appeared and seemed to enjoy the music, lingering at the boat\'s edge for several minutes. He realized he\'d struck upon something.

Captain Kinnon will share with you his knowledge of the fishing industry in the area, as well as stories about early settlers and Gampo Abbey (a local Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in sight of the whale tour).

They make a dynamic team - unequalled in all of Cape Breton!
