Cape Breton Island Sights

Fodor's Review

Visitors who like to stay on dry land while observing sea life should stop by the center. Using zoom scopes on the whale-spotting deck, you may catch a close-up glimpse of the many different species that often frolic just off-shore. Exhibits and models inside the center's modern structure explain the unique world of whales.
