Experience the world's largest gathering of humpback whales and a fabulous diversity of marine wildlife on a guaranteed small group departure. While we can never promise whales, these dates include the prime whale watching season (100 per cent viewing success 1994-2015). Most years we see the largest numbers and varieties of whales between late June and early August. The seabirds are thinning out by late July but everybody should see murres, puffins, razorbilled auks, gannets, eagles, moose, caribou, and many other species of wildlife. Since 1993 (except 1999, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2013) everybody saw icebergs on the June and July trips. We are anticipating great icebergs for 2017!  You will also get to enjoy eastern Newfoundland's museums, lighthouses, trails, wildflowers, songbirds, flavours, and the hospitality of the local people.

 

 

Recommended flight from London: Air Canada from London Heathrow (see below). If you are travelling from a country other than the UK we would be happy to give you guidance on your flight options.
