Come whale watching with Captain Fraser and family in Bay St. Lawrence along Nova Scotia’s most northern coastline at the Top of Cape Breton Island: just minutes off the Cabot Trail.

In Bay St. Lawrence you will be in the feeding grounds for the highly social long-finned pilot whales, the quick swimming white-sided dolphins, baleen whales such as minke, humpback and fin whales, who share the isolated, cliff-bound coastline with grey seals, and seabirds such as bald eagles, guillemots and cormorants.

Locally owned and operated, the Fraser family has lived in Northern Cape Breton, Nova Scotia for over five generations. Captain Fraser has over 35 years of seafaring experience, 30 as Captain. The Captain and crew are local, experienced guides and, most important of all, Coast Guard trained for your safety.

Experience the wonders of the Atlantic in the safety of the Oshan, a 42 Foot Coast Guard-approved fishing boat and touring vessel that surpasses industry safety standards for deep sea fishing and touring.
