About the Captain

Robert BartlettRobert Bartlett is your skipper. A native Newfoundlander, his love of the sea and of Newfoundland history drew him to the Trinity Bay area where he has chosen to live. He has over 25 years of sea experience and is fully certified in boat and tour operations. Skipper Bob has also travelled to the Silver Banks of the Dominican Republic to film and observe Humpback Whale behaviour on the breeding, calving, and mating grounds that they travel to form the North Atlantic at the end of each feeding season.

Robert is an avid SCUBA diver, photographer and naturalist. Newfoundland has many shipwrecks spanning many periods of history. In the Trinity harbour alone, there are three separate known wrecks that can be visited including the wreck of the HMS Spedwell, an English frigate that sank in 1750.

“One thing that I love to share is my love of the ocean, its secrets and its occupants. Yours will be a day trip experience that will be treasured as the highlight of your travels here.” – Robert Bartlett 2009.

Pictures and videos on the website highlight whales, icebergs, wrecks and the awesome rugged beauty of the ocean, cliffs and majestic nature of the bay. Most of the pictures were taken by Robert Bartlett above and below the water. All pictures were taken on our tours and used with express permission of the photographer.
