Iceberg Quest Ocean Tours has daily sightseeing boat tours departing from Twillingate, an outport community on the north east coast, internationally known as, "The Iceberg Capital of the World!". This is a land that is both familiar and mythical, where strangers are friends, and the unexpected is routine. There is no better place on earth to view 12,000 year old icebergs up close and personal. Every year the migrating humpback whales return to play and showcase their newly born calves. The world's closest iceberg viewing occurs during May and June, while the world's largest group of migrating whales visit our waters between June and August. Visit Canvas Cove Bistro and Twillingate Art Gallery on our premises.Two hour tours departing daily at 9:30am, 1:00pm, 4:00pm and 7:00pm with traditional and local music, snacks and full bar service. Screechins' on request. Private charters and special packages available. Experience the wonder of the rugged coastline and pristine waters as we take our guests to a place beyond their imagination. Step aboard ...Experience the WONDER...Your MEMORIES will last a LIFETIME!

We saw icebergs every day of our trip, but never up close. This is up close!!! We toured around several, gathered some iceberg you could take. We saw a small whale.

Google "Twillingate iceberg season" for the answer to the first question. As for "top rated hotel", a little searching in TripAdvisor will give you that answer.
