Captain Mark's Whale and Seal Cruise in Pleasant Bay, Nova Scotia

 Captain Mark's offers some of the best whale watching on the Cabot Trail! Go whale watching aboard either the 42-foot cabin-cruiser 'The Double Hook-up' which hosts researchers from Dalhousie University or aboard zodiac, a RIB style boat known to having close-encounters. Whale sightings are guaranteed! Both options offer sightings of various marine wildlife. Add to that spectacular coastal views of Cape Highland's National Park, the tour with Captain Mark is a must for eco-tourists and photographers.
