St John's Experiences

St. John's, the province's capital, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and traditional small-town charm. It is the oldest and most easterly city in North America.

Below is a small selection of the tours we can organise for you when you have booked your Canada holiday with us and are visiting St. John's. 

Duration: 2 hours

Set sail with Newfoundland's award winning boat tour! Depart from downtown St. John's, walking distance from major hotels and B&Bs, and sail through "The Narrows", past Cabot Tower, en route to Cape Spear. Journey through our pristine waters that are home to world's largest concentration of humpback whales. Steam past 12,000 year old icebergs and watch as Atlantic puffins frolic along our coastlines.

Enter the playground of the mighty humpback whale and watch as they frolic and thrust their massive 40 ton bodies into a full breach, crashing down in a thunderous spray of cool North Atlantic water. Experience Cape Spear from the sea, North America's most easterly point, discovering a place where the Atlantic Ocean meets the edge of the earth.
Explore the M.V. Cetacean Quest and enjoy magnificent views from her pulpit bow, all the while entertained by traditional Newfoundland. Experience the land whose charisma and hospitality attract visitors from around the globe.
Our two-hour narrated tour will enlighten and entertain as you sail in search of icebergs and whales on a true Newfoundland cultural adventure. Vessels offer open decks and heated cabin with washroom facilities.
