Authentic & Exciting Whale Watching Tours

A whales playground!

I booked a tour with Bob and enjoyed it so much, I came back the next morning to do it again. Bob took us out on the water and the whales showed up. He stopped the zodiac with some distance to the whales and let them come, and they did. It was like being on the water with a whale whisperer... Oh and we also saw bald eagles, puffins, the caves and tons of other great stuff. Thank you so much for the experience!

Best whale watching tour out of +12!!!

Capt. Bob was friendly, knowledgeable and delivered the best experience ever. The BEST! We floated quietly as pods of Humpback whales including Mothers and Calves surrounded us as they fed on the Capelin. We saw breaching and fins! Then we floated around towering sea stacks in emerald coloured water watching colonies of Puffins. And, if the wasn't enough, we saw more whales on the way back! I've done over 12 tours in Canada and this was truly an experience of a lifetime! Thank you!

Up close and personal

This was our second iceberg tour of our NL trip and was definitely the most spectacular.....we saw 2 amazing icebergs, some rugged coastline rocks and caves, plenty of bird life, including a pair of bald eagles and hundreds of black guillemots and to top it off was Bob, our Zodiac captain. He was highly knowledgeable and had a wicked sense of humour. Thanks for a great morning in Bonavista.

Whale watching on zodiac

My husband and I went our on the zodiac while in was the experience of a life time...we sawn lots of whales, the scenery is fantastic,, even if we hadn't seen whales the scenery was well worth the trip..We enjoyed it so much we went out the next day with My husband cousin and her husband and even though they grew up in the area they enjoyed it as much as we did...If you are going to . be in this area I highly recommend a whale watching trip on the zodiac.
