What You Can Expect:

We are a boat tour of the resettled communities along the coastline from Rose Blanche to Grand Bruit on the Southwest Coast of Newfoundland, Canada. This a full day interpretative excursion with visits to Petites, West Point, Grand Bruit and the still-active fishing community of La Poile.

Points of interest along the way include two registered heritage structures: Bethany United Church in Petites, and the historic Rose Blanche Lighthouse. There are wildlife viewing opportunities all along the coastline such as sea birds, dolphins, orcas, whales, caribou and moose along the way.

Deep Sea Fishing

You love to fish? We love to fish. Skipper George will interpret and coach you through fishing for mackerel and/or cod (during recreational season) in the cold, clean Atlantic Ocean just off historic Port aux Basques. Included are demonstrations in fish cleaning and filleting, and interpretation of the commercial fishery on the Southwest Coast of Newfoundland. We have the gear; all you need to do is practice calling, "Here fishy, fishy."

Lighthouse Picnic

Our adventure to Channel Head Island starts at the main wharf in Port aux Basques. It includes an interpretative tour along the coastline and a search for eagles, whales, seals and other wildlife that are common in this area. The walk to the top of the island suits most fitness levels and sightseeing desires. We are currently captivated with this small isolated island. Picnic alongside Channel Head Lighthouse and chat with Skipper George about the commercial fishery during a demonstration in nautical knot-tying.

We've timed this excursion to give you an up close view of the Gulf ferry as it sails by en route to Nova Scotia. It makes for great photo opportunities.

Grand Tour

This is a tour of the now-resettled remote communities of Grand Bruit and Petites, with a bonus stop in the still-active fishing village of La Poile. It includes a full day of boating with interpretation and close up views of sea birds, marine life and possibly whales. You will look for beach-combing critters like otters and wild game such as caribou, moose and bear which often frequent the shoreline.

La Poile is one of the last surviving isolated Newfoundland villages that is completely dependent on the commercial fishery for survival. Our skipper is from La Poile and knows the area intimately. You will learn about lobster and crab fishing, and you will try for a cod or mackerel. If you long for fresh air and would like to feel as if you've stepped back in time, this is the excursion for you.

Shark Fishing - Hook & Release

All shark fishing gear provided for customer use. We use fresh bait to lure mako and blue sharks and release them using humane hook release tools and methods after they are caught. This is a catch and release fishery only. Please reserve this excursion at least two weeks in advance of the requested shark fishing excursion day.

Mackerel Fishing

Bigger isn’t always better.
Atlantic Mackerel may not look like a trophy fish, but boy are they ever fun to catch! We like to catch them using rods, but we also offer hand-lines if that is your preference.
Mackerel put up a good fight due to their sleek, compact and streamlined bodies which are designed for fast swimming. And because they’re a schooling fish they’re often hooked, one after the other, providing a lot of fun for the fishing enthusiast.

What To Expect Onboard:

Our touring boat, Miss Georgia, was custom built with your comfort in mind. We can accommodate up to 8 passengers and 2 crew. What do you need to bring? Only a thirst for adventure. We provide a morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack and hot and cold non-alcoholic beverages. If you’re interested in something a little extra, we can arrange a traditional lobster boil or mussel boil on the rocks!
