Welcome To Pleasant Bay Zodiac Tours Boats


Looking for something a little more adventurous?

The "Frayed Knot " is a Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (Zodiac Hurricane), similar to the boats the Coast Guard uses for search and rescue. . The "Western Explorer" seats 8 guests and cruises at up to 30 knots, giving us more range than any other whale watching boat and getting us where we need to go quickly.

Of course, while the "Frayed Knot " is a thrill, it is not a thrill ride. Every trip is guided by an experienced Captain. Seeing the coastline at water level gives you a unique perspective and an opportunity to really experience the local ecosystem.

If you are looking for a wind in your hair "expedition style" adventure with the opportunity to learn about the amazing whales and wildlife of Cape Breton Island, then the Frayed Knot is for you.


Dedicated and Responsible: We’re dedicated to research, education and responsible wildlife and whale watching.

We are not the largest whale watching company, nor do we strive to be. Quality tours and personal interaction is what we are all about.
