Thanks again to our guide Olivia who explained everything so well. We had fun learning about, and touching, all the sea animals and learning about the ecosystem of Bonne Bay and Gros Morne. This is well worth the time to visit.

Lori, the main part of the visit, which is in their "aquarium" is rather cold, and I honestly cannot remembered if it's hc accessible. The workers are pulling animals out of tanks, and it's a bit cramped. Probably unot the best for a group in wheelchairs.
As for your other questions, I'm afraid I can't be much help. Your best bet is to give them a call. I found the staff there to be very helpful.
