Situated on one of the prettiest stretches along The Cabot Trail, Pleasant Bay is a popular spot for whale watching—be it by 42-foot cabin cruiser or zodiac for the more adventurous. In addition to the variety of whales, it’s common to see dolphins, seals, and yes, even bears.
Other scenic highlights include unique cliff formations, sea caves, pioneer settlements, waterfalls, and spectacular coastal views of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. All equipment is provided, including rain suits and hydrophones to hear the whales. Season: May – October; travel time: 1 hour 30 minutes (please note this trip is also available out of Inverness Harbour)
