Whale Watches

We offer whale watching trips in the winter from January to March.  Day trips as well as multiple day trips can be arranged.  See Humpback whales, Fin whales, and the occasional porpoise. 

We also see the occasional Fin whale.  They are the second largest species of whale in the world!​

For Overnights, we usually stay at the Colonial Inn, on the Atlantic oceanfront.  Rooms are clean and spacious, there is a night watchman, and the Inn has a heated pool that can be enjoyed year round!​
