Boat Tour in Twillingate

Imagine yourself seated on a patch of long grass, looking out over the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Fishing boats bounce softly over the waves as the light from the setting sun reflects off the side of a 10,000-year-old iceberg. This is just a tiny piece of the beauty you will experience in Twillingate.

Twillingate embodies everything so many Newfoundland and Labrador outports are famous for: stunningly-rugged coastline, historical, picturesque streets, and lush countryside roads. In the waters off the coast, look for whales, dolphins, harp seals, seabirds and – if the season is right – icebergs. Twillingate is located alongside Iceberg Alley, a vast corridor of ocean that runs from Greenland. One of the best places to view all these sights is at Long Point Lighthouse, which looks out over the distant reaches of Notre Dame Bay.

Walk through winding laneways past colourful houses, standing proudly on the shore. Jump from rock to rock over rivers full of tiny fish. Take a boat expedition and witness whales breaching and playing just metres away from you. Twillingate offers a wide range of scenic walking trails and hiking tours.

Spend time at the Twillingate museum, located in the former Anglican Rectory, and see how the wealthy lived at the turn of the century. Absorb the town's long history. Learn the story of Georgina Stirling, the town's most famous resident, a world-renowned opera singer who toured Italy and the United States throughout the 1890's. Nicknamed "The Nightingale of the North", she was known professionally as Marie Toulinguet.

Be sure to head to our annual Fish, Fun and Folk Festival during the last weekend of July. Join in on the excitement of scavenger hunts, parades, bonfires, fireworks, concerts, and so much more.
