Overview

Your tour begins at the Trinity Eco-Tours Lodge and Interpretation Centre. Your guide will explain the types of whales you'll see, their characteristics, migratory patterns and feeding habits, as well as the description of the type of birds you'll expect to see. Learn about the history of the area, its roots to traditional fishing methods and the culture that emerged from an island isolated in the sea.

From here, you'll journey to the dock (approximately 50 yards) where you'll be fitted in an immersion suit to ensure your safety and comfort on the trip. Afterwards, board one of the two Zodiac style (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats) boats. Listen to a safety brief on the vessels and then head out on the excursion.

Travel to Fort Point across the Harbor, where under the Lighthouse, cannons from the 17th century still point to sea to protect the harbor from invaders. This British Garrison protected this English settlement from the French.

Once outside of Fort Point, whales can be encountered at any time. Travel the coast in search of the air breathing mammals accompanied with their young at this particular time of year. Visit an occupied eagles nest with eaglet usually in the nest. From here, continue up the coastline to view whales, the spectacular scenery, seascapes, and communities along the way culminating with a stop at Spaniards Cove. Here, you should see many bald eagles getting ready to feed on the same fish as the big whales, an offshore fish about the same size as a smelt called capelin.

Capelin enter Trinity Bay by the billions! They are the preferred food of the migrating whale population. It has drawn them here for eons.
At Spaniards Cove there is usually an abundance of whales and bald eagles. Black shoals of capelin are viewed here as the capelin spawn on the shoreline. There are usually close encounters at this point in the tour.

Continue on to Bonaventure Head and encounter many types of whales and marine life. Visit a sea cave shortly after this that extends about 300 yards into the rock face. Tea and scones will be served at this point in the tour, time allowing. Then, continue on to Anthony Island and a Puffin colony. You may also visit some old abandoned communities that are a part of this area's history.

As you return to the dock, pass by Admiral Island and Fort Point, and admire the historic sea town of Trinity from the ocean. Afterwards, you may enjoy a cup of tea or lunch in the restaurant lodge.
