We had a wonderful boat tour in the Bay of Islands on a gorgeous day with Tony as our boat captain serenading us with his music. Joan drove us around Corner Brook after the boat tour and then took us to our cruise ship. We highly recommend them.

Tony was our tour host. He was absolutely fantastic, and gave us a memorable tour that I would recommend to anyone. Two of us got to catch some cod, while one of us just took the tour. Booking via telephone was easy and although we had to mutually postpone our first booking by a day to let the bad weather... More

We loved our tour of the North Arm and Islands around Cox Cove. Tony and Joan are wonderful hosts who love to share their stories about the area, the geology, life of Newfoundlanders with stories, songs and lyric tales from the area and beyond. We are had a great time in the bracing breeze on deck and in the warmth... More

This was a great tour, because the scenery was very beautiful. I didn't have a car, but was able to be picked up in Corner Brook to Cox's Cove at a reasonable price. The hospitality exhibited by the tour company owners, Tony and Joan (sorry if this is spelled wrong), were much appreciated. The most exciting thing was the fact... More

Captain Tony Oxford and his wife Joan, and their son, Andrew, were very musical and very educational. Everyone was informed of the safety aspects of the vessel, life jackets, etc. As your journey moved effortlessly on the water, many interesting topics were discussed about the history of the area, the wildlife and how people had to adapt to being re-located...

We booked online for any itinerary they were offering on August 20/15. Unfortunately, when we arrived, they had no other reservations for this day. i.e. not profitable. However, Joan went out of her way to get us onboard, her husband/Captain was out of town and Joan had to find a fill in, just for us. (A captain not a husband)... More

I was part of a small group of back country hikers that Tony and Joan dropped off into the North Arm Hills in late August, 2015. From the moment we arrived in Cox's Cove they went out of their way to ensure our passage was pleasant and comfortable. When we were picked up the next afternoon following an unforgettable day...
