About Brier Island Seabird and Whale Watch Cruises

Humpback Whale at Brier IslandIn 1984, Harold Graham and other researchers began investigating reports of frequent sightings of Cetaceans around Brier Island. They found that the waters were ideally suited to studying Cetaceans in the wild. In 1986, the public was invited to join the cruise, assisting in funding the project and creating public awareness of these magnificent marine mammals.

In 1987, Harold Graham received a Certificate of Merit at the Nova Scotia Environmental awards in appreciation of outstanding service in the protection of the environment. In 1988, Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises became a limited company and continues to lead research and education cruises in the Bay of Fundy. It remains Nova Scotia’s premier whale watching organization.
