Highly recommend. We did both the St.John's and Twillingate tours - worth the drive to Twillingate to see the icebergs, there were many and we got up close (as close as safety regulations allow) and personal with at least 4 icebergs of different sizes and shape and saw at least another dozen from a distance in our travels. Captain and Crew were great is was an excellent experience - we highly recommend. The St.John's tour did not involve any icebergs but it was a very cool boat ride - you will likely see puffins, maybe a whale but the coastline and coves are awesome to see from the water side.

Wrong time of year for whales and puffins but the scenery is stunning. We did see a huge moon fish and one lone puffin.
We were also serenaded by a live singer through out the trip. Crew friendly and warm .

This was supposed to be the high light of out trip. To NO fault of the captain and his crew the whales were migrating during this time and we did not see any on this trip. Also no puffin were seen during our time. I was told that between May and Aug. are the best times to go. The captain and his crew made it as pleasurable as possible but we were disappointed never the less. The redeeming quality to this excursion was the beautiful scenery that gave ample opportunity for some beautiful pictures. All in All it wasn't a bad time. We'll just have to plan a different time of season to go. Thank You Iceberg tours! P.S. If you are susceptible to motion sickness you may want to be cautious about going, STAY Lower deck.

An awesome experience going along the coast of St. Johns Newfoundland. Boat ride was great, knowledge of the staff / guides was exceptional. The whole crew made the experience very enjoyable and fun for everyone. Also a great place to get screeched in..

Although we came in the “off season” (September) and didn’t get to see any puffins or icebergs, the crew made up for it with their awesome personalities & welcoming attitudes! We had a great coastal cruise & would highly recommend!!

Had a really nice time taking family out to visit. Nice and knowledgeable staff and a great opportunity to get screeched in.

Shout out to Glenn who drove me up to my car so I wouldn't get a ticket!

after being in the area a few days, we learned common knowledge is there are no whales to see in September (or VERY far & few between). We didn't see puffins either, just a large 'sunfish'/Molly.

I feel these tours should lower the cost or at least let you know your changes are slim to see whales, which they advertise.

The staff was amazing though!!

Excellent tour on September 9, 2023. The sights were amazing and the crew were excellent and friendly. The tour was a good mix of the the crew providing interesting information, but also having moments where you could just quietly enjoy the view.

There was live music on board, and it was set up well because if you wanted to enjoy the music you could sit near the back of the boat, and could sit up front or indoors if you wanted a quieter experience.

I live here but have never been on a local tour before but would 100% do it again. A great experience for tourists and locals alike.
