Meet Your Captain

Introducing Skipper Bob Bartlett, your skipper and the visionary behind Trinity Eco-Tours. Named after the famous local arctic explorer from Brigus, Bob Bartlett, the man behind the first successful polar expedition in the world, Skipper Bob shares his enthusiasm and that sense of adventure on our ocean safaris.

Driven by a childhood fascination with Jacques Cousteau, Skipper Bob's love for the ocean blossomed, leading him to become a naturalist, a devoted SCUBA diver, and a skilled photographer.

His journey began in 1996 when he captured his first underwater footage of a whale in White Bay, igniting a lifelong dedication to teaching and inspiring others' appreciation for wildlife. Bob's global travels have taken him to diverse corners of the world, from the Silver Banks of the Dominican Republic to Mexico, Norway, British Columbia, and Costa Rica, where he has meticulously studied whale behavior, from feeding to mating and calving.

Whales are Bob’s enduring passion, fueling his insatiable curiosity about these extraordinary creatures. With over 25 years of experience on the water, Skipper Bob holds full certification in boat and tour operations, ensuring your journey with Trinity Eco-Tours is both safe and unforgettable.

Our eco-friendly whale watching/iceberg tours by Zodiac and Kayak, and our ATV tours are the best in Newfoundland!  We offer beautiful  accommodations and an on-site restaurant. It's an experience of a lifetime! 

This is hands down the best whale watching experience I have ever been on. In addition to seeing whales and puffins, Skipper Bob was exceptional. Great guide, full of stories and information and history of the region and an eagle-eye for whales! Thanks for an exceptional experience!

Highly recommend the lodge and tours! We spent 3 nights at Trinity Eco Lodge. Warmly welcomed each morning by Shannon who helped us arrange some tours as well as gave us pointers on places of interest in the surrounding area.

We had a great time on our sea kayaking tour. Darrell was a fun, informative and educational guide who made us feel super comfortable paddling on the ocean. We’d love to come again when the icebergs and whales are in town!

We had a wonderful experience doing the whale watching tour! We were thrilled to see two different kinds of whales and a very rare bird - the stellar sea eagle, as well as stunning coastal views. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

We had an excellent tour with Trinity Eco-Tours. We got to see whales, a variety of seabirds including the beautiful Atlantic puffins! But the highlight for me was finally being able to see the gorgeous Steller's sea eagle. She's currently the rarest bird in all of North America, and certainly amazing to see!

I did a 3-hour boat tour and it was incredible! Of course, the scenic beauty was breathtaking - you are out in the ocean where you experience the beauty and the force of nature.
