Experience the history and culture of Newfoundland during our interactive Bonne Bay Explorer. This Zodiac boat adventure carries you through the two connecting fjords of Bonne Bay. Discover forgotten coves and learn about the resettled communities that once thrived here. Keep an eye out for the many whales, porpoise’s, moose, otters and other wildlife that now call these areas home. If the weather allows, we land on shore to visit the old homestead gardens and machinery left behind from many years ago.
After your boat tour, we’ll embark on part two of your adventure, a moderate to challenging 4 hour off trail hike up the North side of the Tablelands. We will climb to the top of the 600m lookout providing visitors with unobstructed views of the Bonne Bay fjords and Gros Morne Mountain. Our experienced interpreters will construct the 500 million year old scene that caused this extremely rare example of the earth’s mantle to be exposed. We’ll explore the isolated pockets of serpentine barrens that give rise to a full community of dwarf arctic alpine plant species, some hundreds of years old and normally found much further north.
*Part 1 of our Gros Morne 360° experience takes place in an open Zodiac boat, and depending on weather conditions guests may get lightly sprayed with water as we navigate throughout the fjord and should plan accordingly. This is all part of the fun!
