Tablelands Boat Tour


boat tour

Discover an exciting boating experience that immerses you in one of Gros Morne's truly unique regions, Trout River Pond.

Utilizing swift watercraft our personalized, small group experience provides excitement and adventure difficult to achieve in traditional boat tours. Venturing deep into the glacier carved valley provides a surreal experience of being surrounded on both sides by the towering cliffs of the world-renowned Tablelands and equally impressive North Arm Mountains. Caribou, moose, bear and arctic hare all call this section of the park home and are often seen while exploring the area.

*This 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!
