......the 'Cabot Trail' in all its glory
......the 'Cabot Trail' in all its glory



Every turn in the road offers yet another magnificent view.The 'Trail' is littered with convenient "viewing" spots, where you can often see the Whales far below frolicking in the sea,     while the Whale watching cruisers appear like dragonflies on a pond seeking them out

...another bend another view

Be sure not only to take your camera, but your binoculars too. You might see a Bald Eagle or a school of Pilot Whales.

You will meet the same people time and again enjoying the views as you drive from vantage point to vantage point to get the 'best' view.
.....a life altering experience

To spend an hour on a boat convinced you are not going to be the lucky ones today to see some Whales and then to suddenly see them appear in front of your eyes is an incredible experience.

Not only do you see them [often in large numbers] but often as not they seem to ''play hide and seek'' with you disappearing only to come up again while the boat quiety follows. Then almost as quickly they are gone again...!

There are many delightful coastal towns that you can visit on the 'Cabot Trail'

Cheticamp [shown here] and Pleasant Bay both offer Whale watching cruises. Some even give a 'money-back' guarantee if no Whales are seen.....you can imagine this does not often occur.....the sightings are so frequent.
