Explore the Shore and Whale Watch Package: This is A Bay of Fundy Experience you don't want to miss. Gael Tours is teaming up with Petit Passage Whale Watch for a full day of excitement and discovery! Join us for a three-hour cruise to the waters of the lower Bay in search of whales and seabirds. Included in the day long adventure, your palate will be stimulated with lunch at the Petit Passage Cafe.

Ramble with a Gael Tours naturalist among the tide pools and basalt platforms of one of the world's most dynamic and diverse ecosystems. Explore the effects of an 8-9 metre (25-30 foot) tidal range as we discover what attracts the great whales to our area. Exploring the tidal seascapes of the Bay of Fundy depends on an ever changing ebb and flow cycle. We coordinate with the tides so you can explore the shore in the morning and whale watch in the afternoon. The experience is available when low tide is in the morning, from July 15 to Sept. 15. Be sure to bring warm clothing for your shoreline and whale cruise comfort.
