Owner description: A world-class research and teaching facility, the Bonne Bay Marine Station on Newfoundland's breath-taking west coast is dedicated to expanding knowledge of marine ecology. Take an interactive tour of our aquarium and observe some of the marine plants and animals living in Bonne Bay. We will introduce you to fragile marine plankton, the "saltwater soup" of our oceans. Get your hands wet among the sea stars, coralline algae, hermit crabs, and other curious creatures living in our ever popular touch tank. Storyboards, underwater footage, and interactive displays inform visitors about our latest research endeavors. Tours are provided by knowledgeable, friendly, student interpreters, and are approximately 45 minutes in duration.

“Bonne Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

A nice and very entertaining 2 hour boat ride. The crew provided a great deal of information as we passed certain points of interest and sang a few songs at the end of the trip.
We did see an eagle on the mountain but do not except to see whales.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Went to this tour because my 6 year old loves creatures! Tour lead by students and it was very hands on allowing you to touch fish,crabs, snails, etc. Kept my kids and the adults interested! Enjoyed our tour guide Catherine from Ontario.

“Super experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Very informative guided tour, learned about all the marine life in bonne bay, although it was just my wife and I, there were a lot of kids enjoying themselves. There are a lot of expansion plans for the station and we will probably visit again in a few years.

“Great activity for families!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2011

Really loved the guided tour of the facility that is offered, and how knowledgeable and enthusiastic the tour guides are. The "touch tank" in the lobby is the best part of the whole experience.
