Ride the ‘Old Sow’ with Capt. Ralph

The “Old Sow” Whirlpool is the largest tidal whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere, located off the southwestern shore of Deer Island, New Brunswick & Moose Island, Eastport, Maine.
Local lore says the “Old Sow” was named for the 'piglike' sounds coming from the whirlpool. And, for good luck, be sure to count the numerous 'piglets' churning alongside the “Old Sow”.
This tour also includes Whale watching.
Duration 2 1/2 hours.

Whale WatchING Tours

Come aboard with Captain Ralph. You will spend your time watching for whales, seals, porpoises and eagles as you cruise along the picturesque coastline of the Bay of Fundy. Along the way to Head Harbor Light also known as East Quoddy Head Lighthouse, you will hear of seafaring stories and scientific information from our onboard naturalist. There are many shorebirds to be discovered: cormorants, loons and guillemots to name a few. A quick stop to see Friers Head and then a glimpse of Roosevelt’s Cottage on Campobello Island as well. Experience this fun-filled adventure with us, we look forward to welcoming you all on this tour. Note: We spend more time looking for whales, and this does not go to the whirlpool.
