Jack was great

Jack, our guide was excellent and absolutely full of information. He kept up a continuous commentary for the whole trip and provided an incredible amount of background information.
It was helped by being a sunny clear day at Peggy’s Cove with virtually no one else there due to the time of year.
Amazing and awesome tours...

The most memorable moments were lunch at the restaurant, pics by the lighthouse, looking out at the water and seeing what looked like it may have been a whale!
