    Boat Tours in Gros Morne National Park



    Gros Morne has a landscape like no other, and a seascape to match! The Iconic Western Brook Pond tour exposes a landlocked fjord which is a rare sight, especially in our part of the world. Carved by glaciers, and home to plenty of waterfalls and wildlife, it’s worth the trip alone. Experience the beauty of Bonne Bay in the heart of Gros Morne on a interpretive day trip around the bay. Live commentary throughout the tour highlights the geological wonders, the rich cultural history and the diversity of this “UNESCO” World Heritage Site. Photograph eagles, moose, whales and seabirds. The Evening Cruise is full of live music & refreshments on the waters of Bonne Bay. A pleasant ride on our catamaran with stunning scenery and magical sunsets is the perfect conclusion to a day in the park. The Discovery Tour is more than just a boat tour, this experience made for the whole family will show you just what lives beneath the surface of Bonne Bay. Of course you can always opt to charter a boat and head out on the waters for a fun fishing adventure on the North Atlantic.

  • Kayaking

    Early morning is the ideal time to sea kayak on Bonne Bay, in the heart of Gros Morne National Park. With each paddle stroke you effortlessly skim along the water’s surface. Peering through the water you can see fish scooting along the seafloor, brightly coloured sea stars grazing on blue mussels, and kelp swaying in the gentle ocean swell. If there is a minke whale around you’ll likely see it as you will hear its exhaling WHOOSH sound as it surfaces, giving away its location. Other locations of amazing but challenging paddles are Trout River pond, St. Paul's Inlet and along the coast line in the gulf of St. Lawrence, of course we strongly recommend experienced guides.

  • Music & Theatre

    Areas of unusual and inspirational beauty often lure artists and writers, and Gros Morne National Park is no exception. Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador has its own summer-long theatre festival, which puts off professional, culturally-rich performances at Cow Head and various other communities throughout the area. The town of Woody Point is an especially beautiful artistic hub within Gros Morne National Park and its historic Heritage Theatre hosts many performances, from rock bands to plays and author readings.
