Sea Cave Kayaking along coast of Newfoundland and Labrador

Close Encounters — Sea Caves

As you arrive by motor boat (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat), you look around in awe – is this another planet? The coast is rocky and robust in color, with the rocks looking like displaced puzzle pieces which had been placed haphazardly around, dotting the landscape. When you drift to a stop, the skipper invites you to go explore! Paddling along the coast, a bald eagle drifts lazily overhead searching out the fish beneath you.

Sometimes referred to as the “Jurassic Park” of Newfoundland, our sea caves offer you the chance to get up close and personal with these geological wonders. With an opportunity to kayak, everyone will have taken a trip back in time to explore these auditorium-like caves any way you want to!

Kayaking past icebergs in Newfoundland and Labrador

Close Encounters — Drink an Iceberg

10,000 years is a long time, but it’s the amount of time it takes to form the icebergs that are brought to Newfoundland each spring. Get a first-hand glimpse of these majestic icebergs and see just how magnificent they are.

As you approach each iceberg you can see every striation, and each line and crack tells a story of the icebergs personal history. From your kayak you can hear the iceberg… it snaps, crackles, and pops like a bowl of cereal. It dawns on you that this piece of ice is alive, but not for much longer. Soon, it will have all melted away in the open ocean, beyond the eyes of humanity. Once back on  the zodiac the skipper fetches a piece of the iceberg “to cool your drink later!” he laughs. It’s a long way to go for an ice cube, but the ice maker back home doesn’t have much on this, does it?
