After 30 years this man still loves his job. He got us up close and personal to the icebergs. He treats everyone like family. He is full of knowledge and has a great sense of humour. Bucket list - check. Thanks for the experience.

Cecil is an excellent tour guide and we were very lucky to see several icebergs. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is spending time in the Twillingate area.

A superb visit to see icebergs! We were thrilled to get out today with the skipper who is very knowledgeable about everything ICE! The family craft shop is also a delight and definitely worth a visit! We loved the whole experience.

A boat tour to get close to icebergs is an experience that should not be missed, and we found that Iceberg Man Boat Tour was an excellent experience. We visited when the icebergs were easily visible from the shore, but the Captain took us further...More

We went to Twillingate to chill, catch up with old friends and enjoy the local fare and people. We were not disappointed in the least, despite average day time temperature of 12. Our first time seeing icebergs up close and what a monumental experience. Some...More

Visiting in late July there were a couple icebergs on the distant horizon, but too far for any tours to connect. The captain took us on a nice cruise where we spotted a few whales from the distance along with a bald eagle nest. The...More

Beautiful views, there is obviously no way to guarantee what you will see. We did see whales which was awesome however the baby eagles and the views were well worth it. The owner has lots of great stories and was wonderful with our kids. Definitely...More

It is really difficult to predict the amount of time these icebergs will be passing Iceberg Alley. As of June 18th there are plenty of icebergs to see in the harbours and main waterways. Maybe you will be lucky and a few... More

We are traveling in June 17. I do get motion sickness in a car would gravol be a good idea before we go on the tour. I have gone on dinner boat cruises and I have gone snorkeling in Hawaii but the waters were pretty calm though. I know that water and weather is unpredictable but I'm asking in general. thank you.

There is a site that tracks icebergs via satellite or ambassadors called icebergfinder. So you could probably make an informed decision before you take a boat tour to see icebergs.
