We didn't end up going out with the cruise as we didn't know there was a time zone difference (the island is an hour ahead of US east coast time) despite numerous interactions with the staff, including when our reservation was changed at the last minute the day of (by them) and we explained we had several hours drive to get to them. When we discovered the difference having missed the boat the woman on the phone was quite rude. We cancelled our reservation for the next day.

This was on my bucket list and it was an amazing adventure! Captain Mackie and Robert were excellent at providing a warm welcome and an interesting and informative tour on a beautiful evening. We saw Minke whales, Finback whales and lots of porpoises and seals. Also some bald eagles and ospreys along the way. It was truly a spectacular experience and I was thrilled to be a part of it. So interesting to hear about the work they are doing with the Campobello Whale Rescue and their respect for these animals. Thank you Captain Mackie Greene and Robert Fitzsimmons!

We are still in awe of last nights whale watching trip, we have memories that will last a lifetime. We went way out between the Wolves and Grand Manan Island, we must have seen at least 15 humpback whales, absolutely wonderful experience! Captain Mackie and Captain Robert were excellent guides, they truly love what they do! They are also founding members of the Campobello Whale Rescue, they do terrific work saving the lives of entangled whales! Thanks for what you do!

Captain Mackie gives a personalized tour of the Bay of Fundie on a smaller boat which provides you amazing views without a crowd. He and his crew are safety conscious, incredibly knowledgeable and persistent in locating wildlife for you to see. Their passion for the waters and animals that live within them is obvious and their respect and cooperation with the other boats in the area provides many opportunities to see whales, porpoises, seals and an array of birds on your tour. I highly recommend this tour!

I had the pleasure of joining Captain Mackie Greene and Robert Fitzsimmons of Island Cruises Whale Watching for a tour last evening. I’ve been whale watching with these two gentlemen on numerous occasions and, finally, got around to posting this review. In my opinion, if you make it to Campobello Island, you owe it to yourself to take this tour. You will not be disappointed! Oh, and, the seals and porpoises warrant mention as well.
