    My wife and I made the whale watching tour operated by the Sea Visions service in Ingonish. We only saw a couple of small whales, but the trip itself was well worth the price. The scenery is beautiful, the staff were helpful, and the afternoon was very interesting. Doing this by sail is a very pleasant contrast to the loud and obnoxious Zodiaks that are usually used in the whale watching industry. We enjoyed the quieter and gentler approach, and I can imagine that the whales did too.

    I recommend the Franey trail, which is inside the national park near Ingonish. The trailhead is about a half mile up a gravel road from the Cape Breton Trail. The trail goes to a high rock outcropping with some nice views. There are two parallel routes to the top. My aging knees don't like steep downhill walks very much, so I chose the very steep and somewhat challenging route for the ascent and the gentler one, which follows an abandoned road, for the return. The trail is not heavily used, so there are lots of opportunities to enjoy the mountain solitude. We did see moose in the general area, but I saw none on this trail.
