Viewing the Atlantic humpbacks is always a delight, and this outing didn't disappoint. The sea provided a good ride once out of the harbour. Our tour guide was pleasant and interesting and attentive to his guests. This company seems well-organized, competent and very friendly. Would...More

St.Anthony in June is usually a perfect time to see icebergs. In fact, when we were there, icebergs floated into the cove and we could watch them while we ate our dinner at Lightkeeper's restaurant. However to really feel "at one" with these magnificent natural...More

Don't miss this tour! Excellent and highly knowledgeable staff. Felt very safe in their hands. Observed four whales, numerous porpoises and enjoyed a great couple of hours out on the salt chuck. Highly recommended!

We had an amazing morning whale tour with Northland Discovery Tours. We saw 3 humpbacks and 7 orca whales! The orcas came right up to the boat and made for such a memorable tour! The boat was comfortable and the staff friendly from the moment...More

Great time all around! Great weather, excellent guide/narrator, sure-handed and experienced captain, and not one but TWO icebergs near the St. Anthony harbour. And to top of the morning, a small pod (3 or 4) male Orca (Killer) Whales toyed with us, getting closer and...More

I took a morning tour. We saw a couple of whales and LOTS of icebergs. The narrator was great, I learned a lot about fish, whales, icebergs, Newfoundland, and St Anthony. This tour doesn't supply outer clothing, so be sure to bring your own. It's...More

One of our two main reasons for taking the Viking Trail (Route 430 aka Northern Peninsula Highway) was to take the Northland Discovery boat tour from St Anthony. (The other was L'anse Aux Meadows, and I'll review that separately) The trip (Aug 20th) was well...More

A great day on the water. we saw plenty of humpback whales, a number of large fin whales, some dolphins and an iceberg. What more could one ask for! Well, I was hoping to see a breach, but as luck would have it, a humpback...More

This trip was far more exciting that we expected. First, we had humpback whales surfacing and diving right near the boat. Later there was one breach, which was very loud, but we saw only the splash. As we came around a corner, a very large...More

The whole journey it was non-stop whales and dolphins. A feeding freenzy. Both the captain and the guide did a great job. Very pleasant people. The weather was great as well. Boat was clean, in good shape, and safe for everyone. No shortage of viewing...More

Hello, we arrive in St Johns on Sunday June 14. We would like to take the tour on Monday. Should we be making reservations? There are 2 of us. What time of the day is the best for viewing whales, puffins and of course icebergs? Mary
