BonTours Boat Tours in collaboration with the Bonne Bay Marine Station, a research and teaching center, and part of the Faculty of Science of Memorial University of Newfoundland, offers educational boat tours for science students and families. During your journey our marine specialist will discuss marine life in the fjord. You will discover the amazing sea life living in Bonne Bay waters. Our scientist interpreters will help you sample the cold, deep waters and collect some of the smallest creatures in the ocean. Then it is back to the Bonne Bay Marine Station to learn about the natural history of the Bay and for a closer look at the diverse marine life from the depths of Bonne Bay.
