Boat Tours

Boat touring is prominent with a variety of different waterways to explore. The Humber River provides a view into the history of the paper industry. While, these days, logs are all transferred to the Corner Brook Mill via road, evidence remains of the use of the river as a means of transportation. Specialist tours reveal this and other interpretation of the area offering excellent photographic opportunities.

Ocean tours include the Woods Island Boat Tour, a scenic tour of the beautiful Bay of Islands near Corner Brook. The tour leaves from Pleasant Cove and with the Blomidon Mountains providing the backdrop proceeds to Woods Island, the largest in the Bay, where it is believed that Captain James Cook spent two winters. It is common to see Minke whales during this tour as they are frequent in the area during the summer months.

Western Brook Pond Fjord in Gros Morne National Park provides a dramatic setting for a boat tour. The Long Range Mountains, the Northern most extent of the Appalachians, contain numerous glacially-carved fjords. One of the most spectacular is the Park's largest lake, Western Brook Pond. This 16km lake with a depth of 165m is home to Atlantic Salmon, Brook Trout and Arctic Char, as well as an unusual colony of cliff nesting gulls. There is no better way to explore this scenic delight than by taking the Western Brook Pond Boat Tour. On board, behold the spectacular glacier-carved land-locked fjord, waterfalls cascading from 2000 feet that often turn to mist before reaching the pond, billion year-old cliffs and frequent wildlife sightings.
