We loved our first trip so much, we booked another one 3 days later! Captain Brandon and his son are locals, who clearly know and love the waters around Campobello Island. The boat is smaller than the glitzy whale watching tours out of Saint Andrews, but it enables them to respond more quickly as things evolve. Our first trip out, Captain was able to maneuver the boat, with his knowledge of the tidal currents, so that we had a Minke whale repeatedly in our sights. In fact, as close as maybe 20 yards! But that said, he is very respectful of the marine life, and doesn't crowd them. (It was the Minke's choice to surface so close to us!) We didn't think there was anyway he could beat the first trip, but just wanted to be out on the water when we booked the second. That one surpassed the first! Captain found a porpoise feeding frenzy. It was surreal to be surrounded by so many porpoises, diving around and under us! And he was able to give us a view of a finback whale on that trip as well. Absolutely spectacular!
