5 Amazing Newfoundland Boat Tours

As the song goes, “Thank God We’re Surrounded By Water

Newfoundland is indeed surrounded by water! While it’s appreciated by locals, and a large part of our culture, it’s not something we think about every day. That’s why it’s always fascinating to see tourists from away react to the experience of being so close to the ocean. It is a reminder for us locals to appreciate what we have.

All that said, while you’re here, don’t just look at the water from on shore! You can get much closer with one of the great local boat tour operators.

Enjoying a boat tour in Newfoundland will get you up close and personal with some stunning scenery, icebergs, puffins, whales, and more!

Whether you’re in the Grose Morne area or on the Avalon, there are boat tours that provide amazing experiences. Not only will you get to see the beauty, but a tour guide usually provides some information and many boats also serve drinks, so you may enjoy a locally brewed beer while the sea breeze blows through your hair.

Here are some of the province’s best boat tours.
