With an easy (for the reasonably in shape) walk/hike to the touring location and the tour itself, the Western Brook Pond attraction is phenomenal, sharing the top spot (in my opinion) of the attractions in Newfoundland (that I have visited) with St. Mary's Seabird Ecological...More

We had an amaZing experience. Even the weather cooperated about halfway through with the sun coming out and warming us up! Stunning scenery/views! We really enjoyed this spectacular trip.....especially the added humour and entertainment provided by Carter!!!:):) Cheers Anne

Interesting features along the way and views from far away of the fjords. Very windy when we went. Still lots of people braved the weather to go on the boat tour at the end of the trail.

You will need reservations. There is a hike to the boat landing. Food and snacks there. The boat ride up the fjord offers spectacular views. You will be taking a lot of pictures. Worth traveling for.

Took the boat tour of the "fjord". Spectacular waterfalls and rock formations. It does require a 45 minute easy walk to the boat site and reservations are highly recommended. On the day we went, layers were needed and prepare to get wet if it's windy!

Thoroughly enjoyed the boat tour on Western Brook Pond last Saturday. The 30 minute walk in allows you to stroll along a well constructed combination of gravel paths and boardwalks with benches and sign boards here and there. The tour guides on the 2 hr...More

The walk in (3 km) is really interesting and the boat staff were so entertaining. Views were unforgettable.

The pond has very little human or animal influence which keeps it more pure than most any other body of water on earth. It has an almost neutral pH and is 165 meters at the deepest point. The cliffs are over 700 meters which makes...More

You should be ok but they only sail at 12.30. It cost nothing to make a reservation as they dont take credit cards on line

From what I know it will it's a like a beach wheel chair but takes two people one to pull and one to push ask them if it folds up I think you have to reserve it.
