About Capt. Dave's Boat Tours
As a long time fisherman and licenced tour boat operator, Capt. Dave is well equipped to give you an unforgettable experience on the water. Whether to experience the majestic icebergs as they make their way south; catch a cod ; help Capt. Dave haul his lobster pots, or see the giant humpbacks breach as they feed on schools of caplin, Capt. Dave has the knowledge and experience to make your trip an adventure to treasure for years to come. As a certified tour boat captain, David specializes in small group, personalized tours to view the magnificent icebergs that often frequent the main tickle just off from his fishing interpretation centre, Prime Berth. In addition to iceberg tours, David will take you to explore the rugged coastline of Main Tickle, and view the thousands of nesting birds on the Baccy Islands, on your way to Gut Tickle and through the Salt Hr. Canal to the picturesque fishing village of Herring Neck. Your view of the fishing stages from the water will be a highlight of your Newfoundland & Twillingate vacation. In addition David can take you to the little fishing village of Tizzard's Harbour, his hometown, where he has set his lobster trap since the age of six. From May to October you could also fish for cod during your tour!!!

Very much enjoyed our your with captain Dave. If you’re looking for a more intimate, customized tour, this is for you. The highlight for our kids was fishing. These each caught a fish within minutes. We also enjoyed hearing captain Dave’s stories of growing up in the area. You can tell that he does these tours because he enjoys it and it shows.

We loved Cap'n Dave's stories, his tour of the small villages around the area, and the wildlife. We saw ospreys, eagles, guillemots, and several whales! It was a really great tour. The museum was also unexpected and really well done. An excellent half day spent all around. We'll be back.

Me and 6 others did a boat tour with Captain Dave over the weekend and we had a great time!! He was very informative about the areas. He showed us the shipwreck and told us the history behind it, showed us the fishing village he grew up in, showed us where he found the dead whales to get the whale bones from, showed us some osprey and eagles nests, and even fed some bald eagles. We didn't see any whales or icebergs of course as its not the right time of year, but over all it was a very fun time!! He was really friendly and funny. Feeding the eagles was definitely the highlight of the trip!! Definitely recommend, and hoping to get out there again next year when the icebergs and whales are out!
