“Fascinating and Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

This is a worthwhile boat ride to see this special fiord. It tends to be crowded but worth the long walk to the boat and the cost. The scenery is beautiful to breathtaking and the crew was very helpful and fun.
A nice way to see a part of the Park that you wouldn't otherwise get to view.

“Beautiful Scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

I enjoyed the boat tour. Beautiful scenery everywhere. The walk in was long but pretty easy. Just make sure you give yourselve lots of time to make it to the boat so you don't have to rush. Bring water and take your time. There are a few nice information boards to read along the way. The boat tour was nice. Remember to bring a hat and sunscreen for sunny days. The only thing is I wish there was more information given. The guides did relate some details of the area and what we were seeing but I was just expecting more commentary. Overall a good experience.

“Beautiful Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

My family enjoyed this trip very much. Just two quick comments. If you are booking ahead of time, which is recommended, ask which tour is using the larger boat. It has seating on top giving more people a 360 degree view. The only downside to this trip....Western brook pond is some of the cleanest water in the world but I worry not for long. The boat we were on was just a regular gas engine. I would have loved to have seen a cleaner running boat on the water.

If you want to see the reality of the secrets of Newfoundland, then you need to see Western Brook Pond. Newfoundland is a hidden gem of North America.
