Calgary Stampeder Swaps with Nova Scotia Whale Watcher

Top of page

Fourteen year-old Nilsa looks forward to the Calgary Stampede each year. Her family attends the event annually and Nilsa is responsible for showing their cattle. Nilsa hopes to one day own a ranch of her own. Andrew is 13 years old and an expert on whales. He is a guide for his parents' whale watching company in Digby, Nova Scotia. Andrew takes guests out on the water and teaches them about his hobby and passion. Andrew and his family are also actively involved in Maritime lobster and scallop fishing.

The Swap: Andrew gives a sales talk, enjoys a western cookout and is challenged to show a cow! Nilsa, on the other side, will try giving a whale tour, eat an eastern lobster dinner, and is challenged to shuck scallop at The Digby Days Scallop Festival!
