Top Ways to Whale Watch in Newfoundland and Labrador
No matter how you choose to see them, with 22 species of whales here in Newfoundland and Labrador, you might need a scorecard to keep track. Extra points for a “double breach.”
1) By Boat
The best chance you have of seeing a whale is to venture out into their neck of the woods. Or, in this case, ocean. Take to the seas with any of our experienced operators in a spacious tour boat or a zodiac for the more adventurous.
2) By Kayak
When you're on a kayak tour, you'll be seeing whales at their level. Sea level.
3) By Land
Around here, you can spot a whale without even leaving dry land. That's what happens when you've got 29,000 kilometres of coastline to choose from - whether you’re hiking along the shore, or settling in to a delicious picnic. Every so often, you'll see them launching themselves high into the air and crash down upon the waves. They call it a ‘breach’. And it will have you fumbling for your camera, if not for words.
4) All of the Above
With so many options to see these giant leviathans, make no wonder if you can't decide. Luckily, we have some of our best whale experts here to share their experiences with you. Around here, big fish stories are as much a part of our culture as the ocean itself.
