We booked the trip last minute knowing our changes of seeing an iceberg or a whale were slim, just the wrong time of year. The crew did not disappoint, the coastal tour was wonderful, Amy and Dave were great tour guides. Would definitely recommend them for your adventure. Just keep in mind when you book that spring is the best time for icebergs and whales are in June. The view is spectacular any time of year.

Lovely, welcoming staff. We saw a pod of orcas on our trip which was absolutely amazing! Of course the tours are never the same but the staff really adds to the great experience. Would definitely recommend!!

Took this tour because everything they offer on their pamphlet, but they should advice people that what they say you will experience is only certain times of the year. We saw no whales, no icebergs, no birds besides the regular seagulls. It really was just a boat ride looking at the ocean and coast which we had already seen while hiking. I personally do not think it was worth $80 per person . Maybe in the winter may be worth it , dress heavy since it gets super cold if thinking on taking this tour. There’s other companies at better price for what you’ll get to not see .

Large group of us did the harbour tour. It was nice to see the harbour from a different angle and also Signal Hill, Cape Spear and the caves. But we didn't see much wildlife - maybe half a dozen birds. It was way colder and windier than I anticipated. There were three blankets for passenger use but the boat can hold about 100 people. Maybe they could buy a few more ;-) I would recommend warm clothes and only go on a warm day unless you are very hardy. I wouldn't do it again.

This was a great trip. The staff on the boat were very friendly. I liked the folk music that was played on the trip out of and on the way back from the harbour. We did see two Minke whales but were not fortunate enough to see anything else on this trip.
