Experience Boat Tours

Learn More
There's 29,000 kilometres of pristine coastline wrapped around Newfoundland and Labrador, enough to stretch back and forth across Canada four times. And there's no better way to enjoy it than by casting off and taking a boat tour out among the waves, rugged beauty, and plenty of fresh air.

Discover Whales

As you explore sea caves, inlets, coves, bays, and fjords, you’ll encounter wonders of the natural world. Catch a glimpse of a humpback playfully frolicking or breaching high into the air. You'll also find minke, fin, and orca whales as they swim along the coastline in search of food. Friendly and curious creatures, whales are known to surface just a few metres from tour boats.

Experience Birdwatching

Don't forget to look for puffins, kittiwakes, and gannets that reside in the many cliffs, crags, inlets and islands around the coast, and on the ocean itself. View a spectacle of millions of birds nesting on our province's offshore islands and headlands. Boat tours are one of the best ways to watch seabirds around places such as the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve.

Explore Icebergs

During spring and early summer, you might also cross paths with a 10,000-year-old iceberg drifting down Iceberg Alley from Greenland. Hear the roar of a foundering berg under a warm summer sun, or feel the chill on your skin in its staggering presence.

Discover Coastal Experiences

Boat tours can be short hour-long excursions or overnight trips, on nimble zodiacs or large pleasure boats (and everything in between). While iceberg viewing and whale watching are the most common types of tours, you can also visit ecological reserves, abandoned fishing villages, and historic shipwrecks. Why not go ocean fishing for your supper, or try snorkelling with whales. In Gros Morne National Park, a freshwater boat tour explores the scenic waterfalls, lush wilderness, and majesty of the ancient fjords.
