As you arrive, you look around in awe - is this another planet? The coast is rocky and robust in color, with the rocks looking like displaced puzzle pieces which had been placed haphazardly around, dotting the landscape. When you drift to a stop, the skipper invites you to go explore! Paddling/Snorkeling along the coast, a bald eagle drifts lazily overhead searching out the fish beneath you.
As you enter the great cavity of rock called a sea cave, the world suddenly darkens around you. The water is still, with just a gentle lap of the ocean water against the rocky sides of the cave. You make your way deeper inside until a glimmer of sunlight shines down upon you through a blowhole within the roof. As you make your way out the other side, you have treated again to a view of the magnificent coastline. Is that a sea stack over in the distance?
Upon approaching a naturally formed sea arch, the captain invites you to jump in! Starfish, crab, mussels, and lobsters are greeted as you snorkel into the sea caves. Gazing into the deep blue waters beneath you, you slowly paddle your way to an outcropping. Crawling up onto the rocky shore, you kick off your fins to explore the shallow pools in the craggy rocks where sea urchins nest - be careful, some of them are sharp!
One last chance to show off your flipper skills awaits you as you make your way back to the boat. As you remove your mask and clamber back onto the boat, you are left with a final look at the amazingly unique geology of Newfoundland and Labrador.
