We highly recommend booking your tour in advance throughout the Whale Watching season. Reservations may be purchased in advance by booking online. Tours depart from our dock in Bonavista, adjacent to the Matthew Legacy building on Roper Street. Each trip runs between 2 1/2 and 3 hours. This gives us time to locate and visit the whales and other marine life. We most commonly sight Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, and Minke Whales on our trips. Other sightings include: icebergs, puffins, seals, porpoises, sharks and a variety of sea birds.
As our climate changes we are sighting more and more icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland. 90% of icebergs seen off Newfoundland and Labrador come from the glaciers of western Greenland. The rest come from glaciers on islands in Canada’s Arctic area. Did you know that Bonavista is rated as one of the best places in Newfoundland to view Icebergs. Be sure to call ahead to see if there are any recent sightings.
Your safety is very important to us with every person being provided with a full body flotation suit which will also provide comfort and warmth during your excursion.
We run daily tours at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., during peak season we may also offer a 5:00 p.m. tour.
