Thanks to the Captain! He was hilarious, informative, and fun. Saw so many pilot whales, seals, and eagles! The view of the landscape from a boat was just as amazing as the whales! 100% would recommend!! Thanks so much!

We were a little disappointed the weather wasn’t cooperating so couldn’t go out to look for whales. Instead we did a coastal cruise. Saw seals and awesome cliff faces. Someone thought they saw a whale fin but kinda skeptical as so choppy most waves look...More

They delivered. Whales, seals, eagles. Very helpful in booking. Very informative captain with a Canadian sense of humour. Cruise was just long enough and fun.

We had a great whale watching experience with the knowledgeable captain of Oshun. We motored out hugging the coast to see the beautiful cliffs and ocean views. We then found several pods of long-fin pilot whales. Oshun is also very affordable, possibly because it is...More

Being in the Cape Breton area, it seemed mandatory to go whale watching. Problem is, many of the whale watching tour look like tourist traps and are overly expensive. After some research and asking around, we found Oshan Whale Watch, and, although it was off...More

We wanted to go whale watching, but didn’t have a reservation. So when we showed up, at first we were told no. But after a bit of conversation with Captain Fraser (from the Meat Cove Frasers, not the Antigonish, we were told :) ), we...More

We booked this whale watching tour well in advance because of it's wonderful reviews. We were not disappointed. They were friendly and fun. It was a choppy day at sea so spotting the whales was definitely a challenge for our captain and the photographer that...More

As far as I know, the nature doesn't schedule its shows, so we decided to stay three days in case of rain or bad weather to have a chance to see the whales. Did we? YES!!! We saw lots of whale, seals, dolphins, bold eagles,...More
