#CBUStaycation Challenge 26 – Go Whale Watching

Whether you’re swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or so on, being out on the ocean is an amazing experience in general. Add a sighting of whales to that mix…and it’s absolutely mesmerizing!

There are lots of different places to go whale watching in Cape Breton, and you don’t always have to be in a boat! For example, I know some people who have sighted whales while sitting on the beach in Wreck Cove, and some of our #CBUStaycation challenge participants have seen whales while kayaking!

However, if you are looking to go on a guided whale watching tour, you can find many around the Island!

Some places to go:

What to Expect:

  • Approximately 2 hours on the water
  • $30-$60 dollar fee for adults and $10-$30 for children
  • Whales, dolphins and seals
  • An unforgettable experience!

This challenge is unique in that it can (possibly) have a fee attached. If you’re not in the market for a whale watching tour, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. A group tour from Oshan Whale Watching is now a part of our Ultimate #CBUStaycation Grand Prize Package! Keep sharing your #CBUStaycation photos and you could win!
