About The Captain
Robert 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.
World Cetacean Alliance Partnership
Trinity Eco Tours is proud to be a partner of the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) – the world’s largest marine conservation partnership. The WCA believes in protecting both human and cetacean communities, and their environments, from the detrimental impacts of tourism. The WCA campaigns and advocates for change in these situations, particularly in places where there is evidence that tourism is having an impact on cetacean populations, especially isolated populations and threatened species.
The WCA has a unique and important role to play to ensure that whale watching tourism is a force for good, benefiting whales and dolphins and their habitats through sustainable practices. We plan to achieve this by developing projects and initiatives with tour operators that phase out captivity and encourage responsible whale and dolphin watching in the wild, ensuring whale watching tours meet best practice, and promoting destinations where entire communities respect cetaceans and drive forward responsible and sustainable solutions.
