The northern coast of Canada by boat
The northern tip of Newfoundland is well known for its sea life and dramatic icebergs and sea cliffs. In late June the seasons last few icebergs say hello to hundreds of dolphins plus a dozens of humpback whales and together with the occasional minke, fin whale, and orca.
We will join the Alcock family for an exploration of the coast on their 47-passenger Cape Islander – a style of fishing boat with a single keel, flat-bottomed at the stern and more rounded towards the bow. We shall hear tales from this land of Vikings, moose, salmon and caribou, while enjoying an up-close look at an enchanting and dramatic piece of coastline.
Our boat trip will last just over two hours, off the dramatic St. Anthony coastline near Fishing Point. Seals, eagles, and a variety of seabirds are other possible sightings, but dolphins and humpback whales are the most common highlights.
- Walking information: Passengers will walk the few meters from the tender dock to the tour boat dock. There is a walk of around 20 metres (60 feet) to board the boat, over uneven ground and wooden docks, plus 3 steps on board
