“WONDERFUL BOAT TOUR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We had just the best time on the water. The day could not have been more perfect...calm sea, beautiful bright sunshine, clear blue skies and a warm breeze.
We were on the 1pm tour and it actually ended up being close to 3 hours as the captain of the boat was doing his best to track some elusive whale for us. We really appreciated the effort he made in trying to give us the best experience ever. Unfortunately the whale and any other wildlife around was not being very cooperative and all we saw was the back of a whale quite a ways away a couple of times. Even though there might not have been whales to really see (or icebergs!) the scenery was absolutely stunning.

“Perfect afternoon cruise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Three of us went out with 3 other passengers. The crew are so nice and welcoming. We learned quite a bit about Newfoundland history and wildlife- the whales were wonderful. We were not rushed at all and are still amazed they took us out, even with such a small number.

“Fun afternoon, Thank You!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Had a great time on the boat with Kim and Perry. Not many whales this tour but Kim was entertaining. We did the Meal Deal and enjoyed lunched before the tour. Perry talked within my husband about fishing and boats. They are so determined to show guests whales that we were out almost 3 hours instead of the 2 scheduled.

“Just Amazing- made more enjoyable by Kim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The iceberg was amazing, seeing the gorgeous hues of turquoise. Kim our host was a scream, we laughed so hard. She made our trip wonderful. Be warned, you may see an iceberg out at sea, but you will only get to see it up close, if it floats in 5 miles from shore. We were so lucky to see one up close. So A+ to tour.

“Icebergs and Whales Ahoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Captain Perry took us out on a fantastic boat tour to see an Iceberg and we happened to see some whales. Kim (First Mate) was funny and informative. She give a good explanation on life in Twillingate.
