A wonderful way to see beautiful Western Brook Pond. Overall terrific experience with Bontours, however the boats were extremely crowded during our tour. In my opinion, there should be fewer people allowed on the boat. Fewer people on the boat would have made for a...More

Nice Boat Ride but overpriced for just a scenic cruise. The hike in uneventful and waiting for the boat there are a lot of people.

A truly special experience. Western Brook Pond is spectacular and this is definitely the best way to see it. Even though we had cold and overcast weather, it was still an amazing journey. A definite highlight of our trip to Gros Morne.

The best thing in Gris morne. Make the time to do this tour. It was truly worth every penny. We went on a cloudy day, the views were fantastic. The staff on the boat really work to make it fun on the ride back.

Hi Nancy, Yes you are able to push a wheelchair. The trail is fairly flat, partly boardwalk & partly crushed stone. If you need to rent a wheelchair, you can rent one from the visitor center in Rocky Harbour.
