Quick Look at Newfoundland Circumnavigation

Also known affectionately as the Rock, Newfoundland where hearty fishing families have endured for generations, wresting a living from the sea and developing a famously extroverted culture that’s rich in folk music, friendly humour, delightful dialects, and unique foods (Jigg’s dinner! Scrunchions! Flipper pie!). The best way to see it all is the old way, by water.

Witness the awe-inspiring giants of the sea

Spotting whales in their natural habitat is an unforgettable experience. Sail through picturesque waters, guided by expert naturalists, and encounter majestic humpbacks, orcas, and more.

Witness their vibrant plumage and graceful flights, making spring birdwatching in Newfoundland an absolute delight.
