Choose from one of our exciting boat tours or try both to truly experience the rugged coastline and spectacular marine life of Newfoundland and Labrador. Step aboard and set sail to Atlantic Puffins, Humpback Whales, sea stacks, caves and a natural waved powered geyser. Watch as seabirds dive for food, bald eagles soar overhead and the sun glistens off of towering icebergs.
The best time for seabird viewing is from May until early September each year and whale sightings are highest in the month of July. Icebergs can typically be seen from May to July, however it is important to note that icebergs do not frequent our waters every year.
