Whales plus sails! From the historic shores of Saint Andrews, across the blue-green waters of the Bay of Fundy, beyond where the Old Sow Whirlpool churns and the East Quoddy Head Lighthouse shines, live some of the last great wonders of the world.
We have feeding whales, playful porpoise, soaring eagles, sunning seals and more. Sit back and relax aboard one of New Brunswick's most beautiful Tall Ship motor/sailing vessels, while watching whales and listening to a wildlife and historical interpretation by your attentive and entertaining naturalist and crew. Walk about the deck and explore the sheltered cabins below.
Our adventure is appropriate for all ages with plentiful children's activities such as hauling sails, whale colouring, pirate costumes, face painting and a touch tank with starfish and crabs. Honourary certificates for those who can steer a straight course!
The Jolly Breeze was finely crafted in New Zealand in 1989 as a private, ocean-sailing yacht with fine woodwork, gleaming bronze and flowing lines. She has since sailed around the world, being operated as a sightseeing vessel in Saint Andrews since 1995. Jolly Breeze is fully Coast-Guard approved for up to 47 passengers and equipped with a new low-emissions engine and modern safety systems.
We offer a complimentary breakfast on our 9 a.m. tour. Joanne's famous, homemade Tall-Ship soup is featured on the midday and afternoon tours. The Jolly Breeze enjoys a heated cabin and snack bar, as well as a fully licensed bar. There is a washroom and baby-change room. Comfortable seating and an unobstructed view in every direction. Reservations highly recommended.
