“Fun and informative boat tours (Icebergs, Whales and Birds!)”

Northland Discovery Boat Tours
Ranked #1 of 20 things to do in St. Anthony
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I sat on the top level of the boat - it's not a huge boat, but I prefer that. (Note: if you're easily seasick, do not sit at the top. It's worse up there) We saw a number of fantastic icebergs and cool seabirds, and Steve (our guide) was a wealth of information about the topic, as well as other sights in the area. We didn't see any whales, but that was okay! It was a really fun two hours: stunning views and really educational. A must-do in St. Anthony!

A very great way to get up close to the icebergs. Steve was an excellent tour guide with lots of knowledge of the area and Newfoundland. Well worth the drive up from Gros Morne!

We really enjoyed this tour and the professionalism of the captain and guide. Steve, our guide, made contact with each passenger and gave an interesting narrative of what life is like in St. Anthony. He gave a great description of the habits of humpback whales, seals, and puffins, and also polar bears. We never realized the journey that ice bergs take and what truly constitutes an ice berg vs. pack ice. We also learned about growlers and berger bits! We were fortunate to have a clear sunny day. But we were happy to have worn winter jackets, toques, mitts, and wind pants as it can get cold if you choose to remain on deck.
We saw two whales and some - excuse the pun - very cool icebergs!! Another check mark on the bucket list!

Staff excellent . Very knowledgeable and friendly. Amazing icebergs. No whales that day but can't control that.

Time well spent. I've been on numerous whale watching excursions in which all we saw was water. Northland Discovery got us near 3 humpbacks and we got up close and personal with sever enormous icebergs.

They'll even fetch a chuck of iceberg out of the water and chip off a hunk for you to eat.
