Booked easily online and received the confirmation with details via email. The experience itself was wonderful. Offers a perspective of Gros Morne National Park you wouldn't otherwise have if you just stuck to the hiking routes.

My family is from Woody Point on the other side of Bonne Bay. My husband, kids and I went for a visit and spontaneously decided to take the boat tour. Our package included a water taxi from Woody Point. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The tour guides were fantastic and Wayne had us in stitches with his effortless comedic point... More

Do not miss this tour. It is a pleasant 45 mins flat level walk to the boats. Bring your camera lots to see. The boat operators were friendly and although rainy and windy the tour was super. A must see and do. R

This place is majestic and gorgeous so worth the trip. We were so grateful to catch the last tour on the last day of the season this year. It was an amazing day sunny - but still chilly. The staff is great about reminding you to dress appropriately for your comfort. Even if the crew had had no personality the... More

The tour we had was fantastic. We loved the history, geology and majesty of the setting. The main interpreter was knowledgable, affable and perfectly suited to the situation. We were extremely fortunate to witness a school of tuna feed within 50 feet of our boat. That struck us with both awe and reverence for the ocean world that surrounded us.... More

We took advantage of both the Bonne Bay tour and the Western Pond Tour - on both we had excellent informative, friendly guides who were quick to share information or just chat with the passengers.

My husband and I took this boat tour on a sunny, but chilly September day. It was very enjoyable and the boat was comfortable with several seating options--up top, inside and out on the deck. For those that didn't mind getting doused with freezing water, the bow was also an option. The two hours on the boat passed quickly and... More

The clouds went away and the sun was shining off the rock faces and the scenery was something not seen in many other places. The boat ride and the explanation of the formation of this fjord was well done. The walk across the bog was actually the highlight of the day for us as we set out early so that... More
