Diver and Beluga Whale

Just off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, the meeting of the cool Labrador Current and the warm Gulf Stream creates an abundance of marine life that attracts thousands of whales, and provides rich nesting grounds for millions of seabirds. That, along with the clear and cool water, 10,000-year-old icebergs, and 500-year-old shipwreck history, makes this place a diver's paradise.

Marine Life

For divers who come for the diverse marine life, a completely different kind of experience awaits. In Western Newfoundland, near Gros Morne National Park, you'll find one area where both northern and southern sea species reach the limits of their range, making for a particularly abundant environment. Here you can view all sorts of shellfish and other sea life clinging to an underwater cliff, and practice underwater photography skills.

During the early spring and summer, you'll also find whales and icebergs crossing paths along these shores. Contact Ocean Quest Adventures and arrange to snorkel alongside one of the thousands of humpbacks, or get up close to a giant iceberg drifting down Iceberg Alley on the northeast coast.



There are an estimated 8,000 shipwrecks on the sea floor around Newfoundland and Labrador. While many of the submerged vessels succumbed to perilous ice and storms, four were victims of German U-boats during World War II. Of those, the SS Lord Strathcona, located in Conception Bay near Bell Island, is just 89 feet from the surface and the most accessible. With visibility here at 80 to 100 feet, torpedo holes and other features are easy to see.

Starting at $215 Per Person
You've just slipped into the water and in the distance you see a different shade of blue. It 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 so big be alive?

Or snorkel the incredible sea caves and kayak along the cliffs of Bell Island! A perfect day on the water that gives you the freedom to explore each nook and cranny of the island.

Later you can enjoy a delicious lunch with one of our partners!
