OCEAN SAFARI Explore Newfoundland's Rugged Coastline

While the whales are definitely the highlight through July, the ancient southern shore coastline has much more to offer than just whales. Departing daily at 10 AM we will take you on an adventure along the coast's rugged coastline. 

As you leave Petty Harbour you will explore the ancient "Jurassic Park" coastline, riddled with sea caves and cascading waterfalls. With whales circling below, the occasional group of Orcas watching from afar, and eagles patrolling overhead, you'll get the chance to adventure in some of the most pristine conditions the Atlantic Ocean has to offer. Once you've had your fill of taking in the sights, you can get a nice refreshing shower underneath the natural waterfalls. After that, a quick visit around Pirate's Cove - don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for any buried treasure! You may find that your biggest challenge during this trip will be deciding if you want to experience this from the boat, or from the water in full snorkel attire!

As you are gently nursed along the majestic coastline, you look in awe at the natural beauty of the land. Starting at the very top of the sheer cliffs you see the vegetation on top, and as you continue downwards you can almost see back in time as the cliffs transcend into sandstone, covered with the stains from generations worth of iron ore deposits . Finally, where the water meets the land, tidal marks, the sea snails,barnacles, and kelp hint at the vibrant  ecosystem below the water which many of the fish and marine life call home.As  the skipper cuts the engines you squirm in anticipation to slip into the water and take in the beauty of what's around. You finally jump in and start to make some new marine friends!

In the water, you bob around and watch in awe at the ecosystem which is living beneath the waves. Perhaps today, a school of jellyfish is slowly making its way out to sea. Or if you are lucky a jumble of sunfish, tuna, and even the occasional leatherback turtle may be playfully frolicking around. As you climb back into the boat and head home, the people who didn't choose to snorkel look with jealousy as you beam with enjoyment at the experience. Finally, you think you've seen it all - just as you wonder what else you could have missed a pod of dolphins (or as they prefer to be called, jumpers) attempt to race you back to the marina, only to peel off at the last possible moment.  What a way to spend an afternoon!!
