Wonderful experience! The tour was great, and the staff are fantastic. We had a baby with us, and they were super accommodating and helpful. The boat is clean and comfortable with plenty of places for you to sit - you won’t miss anything. Great commentary, and a fun little “screech in” at the end! Would definitely recommend!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed an amazing afternoon on the Iceberg Quest. We absolutely LOVED every second of it. The captain was extremely friendly, along with all the other crew members. One crew member by the name of Glenn, in particular, made us feel very welcome and made sure everyone was comfortable and looked after. He quite frankly made the trip!! I highly recommend this boat tour to anyone, whether you are from here or from away.

Great trip! I took my boyfriend on this tour, it was his first time visiting Newfoundland and he was blown away. It was late in the season so we were prepared for the fact we likely would not see any whales; we did however see lots of harbor porpoises, a sun fish, and amazing scenery. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We had a great time and will book again on our next visit home!

After coming to St Johns for years, we finally went aboard the Iceberg Quest. This is a MUST to take in the breathtaking sights of this magical island. Live, traditional music by the great Arthur O’Brien makes the trip very special… but the highlight was our charming and hilarious guide, Glen, who welcomed our family with open arms. Thanks Glen and all the great staff who made our trip truly unforgettable!
