Our tour was on a day with perfect weather and the water was gorgeous. There were no icebergs in the area and we only saw a hint of two humpback whales, but the trip to Twillingate was completely worthwhile. At the end of the tour...More

We appreciate that you wanted to ride with us, but with the deterioration of conditions on the water I decided to cancel the tour. It is the sea state that determines whether or not the vessel moves.

I bought an iceberg tour but finally got much more. The captain takes time to show you whales, balded eagle. We followed an Humpback whale for quite a while. It was great. Also, seeing icebergs makes you feel very small on this beautiful planet.

It is really difficult to predict the amount of time these icebergs will be passing Iceberg Alley. As of June 18th there are plenty of icebergs to see in the harbours and main waterways. Maybe you will be lucky and a few... More
