Experience our Whale Watching Tours in Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. Our whale watching tours are a beautiful, exciting, and unique three-hour experience. On our whale watching tours, you will have the opportunity to see the majestic Humpback and other whales, such as Fin, and Sperm, when in season. We see Minke Whales all year long!

Your whale watching tour in Newfoundland will also be jam-packed full of epic landscapes, endless wildlife viewing opportunities, such as Dolphins, Porpoises, Seals, Bluefin Tuna, Basking Sharks, Puffins, Gannets, Eagles and more!

During Newfoundland whale watching season, the largest population of humpback whales come here every year, feeding on krill and capelin. The whales start to migrate to Newfoundland from the middle of May to the end of September.

The pictures taken on these pages are from our tours exclusively, so you can imagine the range of wildlife that we see. Be sure to check out some of the photos or videos from our whale watching tours for a more exclusive look into what you could expect on our whale watching tours.


Equipment For Whale Watching Tours

The most important aspect of our whale watching tour is your safety! On our whale watching tour, you will have a seat in our 25 Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB), also commonly referred to as a zodiac. RHIB`s are powerboats fitted with inflatable collars or tubes, which make RHIB`s almost unsinkable and suitable for use in all sorts of conditions. RHIBs are some of the most versatile boats available and are used as rescue boats, and patrol boats. Our RHIB is Transport Canada certified as a tour operating boat with a capacity of 12 persons. As well, our boat is equipped with your choice of brand new Helly Hansen flotation suits.

**Please note that “Zodiac” is a brand name of an RHIB — it is not a style of boat.

Why Choose a Zodiac Whale Watching Tour

Our RHIB Zodiac Boat will provide you with a more personal experience on your whale watching tour with the Skipper (Tour Guide), whales and other wildlife that we may encounter. You are also likely to get closer to whales in an RHIB Zodiac Boat compared to a traditional whale watching tour boat.  Whales often have to avoid going near the traditional whale watching boats because if they get too close they can hurt them with the props or the keel. We maneuver our boats out of their way and let them be socially interactive if they choose. We maneuver our RHIB out of the whale’s way and let them be socially interactive if they choose.
