We recently sailed with Iceberg Quest in St John's and the trip was top notch. There were no whales at this time of year but the scenery was spectacular. The crew was exceptional, friendly to a person. Highly recommend this trip anytime.

We decided to take this local tour to go out on the ocean. The captain and crew were nice. We had a calm day on the ocean. We were fortunate enough to see a sunfish....it was huge!
