Whale Interpretive Centre


A visit to the Whale Interpretive Centre is a great way to enhance your whale watching adventure, or add to your knowledge of these intelligent creatures. The Centre can be both informative and entertaining with film, sounds and exhibits about the many different whales that inhabit the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic.

Hanging high above visitors is a full scale model pilot whale, but this is not a generic pilot whale. A look at his dorsal fin indicates a definite hook in its shape. The whale is named Hook because of it, but more important, Hook is a very real pilot whale that often frolics off the coast of Pleasant Bay.

The Whale Interpretive Centre offers local information, a short video on the relationship between whales and humans. whale sounds, a question and answer video on Maritime whales, a salt water livestock tank and many more exhibits. We have an interesting marine gift shop, and not to mention a helpful staff filled with their own stories of whales and sightings.


Open seasonally May to October.
