Pirates Cove Whale & seabird Cruises

Welcome to Pirate's Cove Whale & Seabird Cruises!  This year we celebrate 24 years of whale watching in the Bay of Fundy!

The Sollows family of Pirate's Cove Whale & Seabird Cruises wishes to invite you to Long Island, on the coast of the Bay of Fundy to venture among whales, seabirds and an amazing marine ecosystem.

The Bay of Fundy on Canada's East Coast is the summer feeding grounds for many species of marine mammals, and seabirds. Each year from mid May to late fall the bay is teaming with marine life, and is one of the richest marine habitats in the world.

Keep in touch with what's going on by checking out our blog or for more regular, and occasional updates from the boat, like us on Facebook!

The Sollows family will keep you up to date with all the news and events happening at Pirate's Cove!

The Cruise

Each cruise begins at the Tiverton Harbor. Departure times are 10am, 1pm, and a 5pm sunset cruise added upon demand. A typical cruise will last from 3-4 hours, depending on how far we have to go to see the whales. Humpback, Fin and Minke Whales are often found within a few miles of Tiverton, but we sometimes need to travel further, depending where the whales are feeding. As you depart Tiverton and enter the Bay of Fundy, you will pass Boars Head Lighthouse, a working lighthouse on the northern tip of Long Island. You can expect to see any or all of the following species of whale: Humpback Whale, Fin Whale, Minke Whale, and the rare North Atlantic Right Whale. The Right Whale was hunted nearly to extinction back in the whaling days and still only has a population of approximately 400 animals. Over half of that population comes to the Bay of Fundy each summer.

Also commonly seen are Atlantic White Sided and White Beaked Dolphins, Harbor Porpoise, Grey and Harbor Seals, Basking Sharks and a wide variety of seabirds. We have also sighted some not so common visitors to the Bay of Fundy in the past. In 1995 and again in 1996, Pirate's Cove Whale Cruises documented the first ever sighting of a Blue Whale in the Bay of Fundy! Other past sightings have included Sperm Whales, Pilot Whales, a Beluga Whale, a small pod of Orcas and Sea Turtles. Each trip is different and you never know what you're going to see. The chance to see these magnificent creatures while in the company of the friendly and knowledgeable crew of Pirate's Cove Whale & Seabird Cruises is an experience that you will always remember.

Sightings are guaranteed, and it is very seldom that we do not see whales. If, for some reason, we cannot find a whale, we will offer you a free pass to join us again at any time.
