Attraction details
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.

At the waterfront, an active experimental fishery lab. Lots to see and touch. Great young guides. Touch tank. Tours. Inexpensive.

Very basic museum. Not at all fancy. Guides take you around and you look in dimly lit acquariums or tubs. But the museum is cheap and very dedicated to presenting the local marine life. Guided tours leave every few minutes and a guide is essential.

There is a lighthouse that is white and trimmed in red. I included it in a rug hook I am making. When my Aunt and Uncle were down to visit me we stopped for a rest, stretch, and a picnic lunch. You can rest on the bench there too, The lighthouse maintenance is in question, who pays for it , is it worth it to keep it? I say yes. Great spot Bonne Bay. I noticed a 2 level whale watching /party boat tour travelling . When you see the view, you will be in "awe".
