Festival Of Whales

From: £Contact us

The 2018 Festival of Whales took place in Canada’s Bay of Fundy, where the world’s biggest tides create a phenomenon that attracts rich cetacean life – most notably the endangered North Atlantic right whale.

Naturalist Mark Carwardine – who knows the area, has accompanied previous Festivals of Whales, and led this trip – sums up the experience from 2018…

“If you want to see critically endangered North Atlantic right whales, the Bay of Fundy is the place to go. And the best way to spend maximum time with them is to charter your own boat. So that's exactly what we did!"


We are currently planning our next Festival of Whales. In the meantime, why not join our Festival of Wildlife in Spitsbergen ?
