Boat Tour - Gros Morne Tablelands

There's 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles) 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 boat.

Among the waves, rugged beauty, and plenty of fresh air, you'll encounter natural wonders like icebergs, whales, and seabirds as you explore sea caves, inlets, coves, bays, and fjords.

Whale Watching

Whae Watching

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.

Seabird Spotting

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.

Iceberg Viewing

Icebergs

During spring and early summer, you might also cross paths with a 10,000-year-old iceberg drifting down Iceberg Alley on a southerly migration 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.

Tours

Boat tours can range from short hour-long excursions to overnight trips. While iceberg viewing and whale watching are the most common types of boat tours, you'll also find tours that include ecological reserves, abandoned fishing villages, and historic shipwrecks. In Gros Morne National Park, take a freshwater boat tour to explore scenic waterfalls, lush wilderness, and ancient majestic fjords.

Celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with a walk on the Wundarstrand at the edge of the Labrador Sea.

Visit the Southern tip of the Wundarstrand, the place where the Vikings walked as they explored North America, where aboriginal people hunted and lived for 7000 years. Stay longer, walk further.

You are bobbing up and down in the Atlantic Ocean. In the distance a different shade of blue grows and brightens, until it is white. It takes a moment to process that this is the underbelly of a humpback whale. How can anything living be so big? The whale surfaces for air and notices you. How curious and strange you must be to her. She decides to have a closer look. You realize you now have a new friend; too bad you can’t text her later.
