We bought a package that included the B&B, hike, theatre, and whale-watching ride... expensive but a highlight of our time in NFLD. They ran the whale-watching 3x/day and sometimes they cancelled or didn't see whales, but we had good luck!

Declared no tour at 08:30 and told to move to 13:00 with no guarantee that the tour would run. That despite staying overnight in the owners B&B. Not good. Disappointing, and a long 1,200km round trip. Unhappy!!!More

I read your review but I do not think that you have the whole story. I am Skipper Bob who does the tours and we have probably the most intimate whale watching experience in the world other than swimming with whales. Our pictures on Facebook...More

Skipper Bob was a great host for this tour, looking for whales off Trinity. His pre departure talk helped outline the safety aspects and let us know what whales we may possibly see once out in the water. We were all outfitted with survival suits...More
