WHALE WATCHING ADVENTURES

Whale watching while attending a marine mammal conference... Nova Scotia is the place to do it! Along with 12 ‘awe-inspiring’ species of whales you may see, chances are you’ll see other marine life too including porpoises, seals and seabirds while out on the open water. 

Some of the species you are likely to encounter include long-finned pilot whales, minke whales, Atlantic white-sided dolphins, fin whales, grey seals, and harbour seals as well as occasionally humpbacks, common dolphins, harbour porpoises, and some other rarer species.
