    The Tour

    Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the western coast of the island of Newfoundland. Located in the Park is the landlocked fjord of Western Brook Pond. Carved by glaciers, stunning fjords, plenty of waterfalls and wildlife it is recognized for its beauty and geological significance.

    The tour has been featured in many magazines and several television programs. Throughout the two hour boat tour we provide live interpretation pointing out some of the geological and historical features of this wonder of nature. Refreshments are available. Our boats have canopied decks and on-board lavatories.

    The lake waters are pristine, having had very little impact from human activities. Our vessels, in order to operate on the pond, have a special certification required by Parks Canada and have  minimal impact on the environment.

    There is no better way to explore this magnificent scenery than by taking the Western Brook Pond Boat Tour!

    What To Expect

    Explore the stunning vistas by taking our Western Brook Pond tour located in the Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This experience is part of Canada’s Canadian Signature Experiences collection, which shows the world the best that Canada has to offer. The pond is located in the long Range Mountains, the most northern section of the Appalachian Mountains surrounded by deep rock walls. This 16 kilometer lake with a depth of 165 meters is home to Atlantic Salmon, Brook Trout and Arctic Char and an unusual colony of cliff nesting gulls. The pond is a freshwater fjord carved out by glaciers during the ice age 25,000 to 10,000 years ago. Its water is extremely pure.

    Aboard, at Western Brook Pond, observe the spectacular glacier-carved land-locked fjord, waterfalls cascading from 2000 feet that often turn to mist before reaching the pond, billion year old cliffs, and frequent wildlife sightings. Glacial action has resulted in magnificent scenery, with coastal lowland, alpine plateau, glacial valleys, sheer cliffs, waterfalls and many pristine lakes. There is camping in the park, or stay in one of the adjoining seaside communities of Cow Head, Glenburnie, Norris Point, Rocky Harbour, Trout River or Woody Point.

    Gros Morne National Park, an outstanding wilderness environment of spectacular landlocked, freshwater fjords and glacier-scoured headlands in an ocean setting, is an area of exceptional natural beauty. This special place is truly a photographer’s paradise. Amazing photographs can be produced with absolutely stunning images.
