The Coastal Nature Tour takes passengers to the mouth of the Halifax harbour, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the cliffs of Chebucto Head. While out on this adventure, the crew will pull a lobster trap from deep within the waters of the Atlantic and share anecdotes and common practices about the East Coast's most famous crustacean. You'll learn how to handle a lobster, snapping claws and all, and discover how these intriguing sea creatures continue to live and thrive in our waters. Delight in the opportunity to see species of minke whale, fin whale, dolphin, seals, tuna, and sunfish. Keep your eyes peeled however, as these elusive sea creatures are cleverly camouflaged and thus, one must always be on the lookout. Finally, you'll have an opportunity to feed various seabirds- they always look forward to our visit. <br>Please note: Wildlife sightings are unpredictable and therefore, are not guaranteed. <br>
