Enjoy your stay at the lodge for two days while choosing your tour times to view whales, icebergs, puffins, gannets, bald eagles, dolphins, capelin on a Zodiac Tour. This tour is 3-hours long with a guided introduction to the species of whales, sea birds, and animals that are typically seen on these tours.
Your guides will then fit you with an immersion suit to let you truly enjoy the thrill of being in a Zodiac boat. Enjoy a close viewing of the marine world. Travel up the Trinity Coast and view the majestic mountain cliffs that culminate in a rocky shoreline. Here, Eagles migrate annually to prey on the sea birds and fish that thrive in this area. Capelin roll on the beaches to spawn and fertilize their eggs after traveling from their offshore home. Humpback, Sperm, Fin and other species complete an annual migration to feed on the billions and billions of these little fish.
You'll pass by an occupied eagles nest with young eaglets in view. Gannets, puffins, turres and murres are seen along the way. Dolphins are not an uncommon appearance and may show up anywhere on the tour.
Several films have been shot in the Trinity area, including The Shipping News, The Grand Seduction, Random Passage and just recently Maudie. You'll pass by the areas that these films were shot. They are included in the tour at the 1, 5 and 6 Nautical Mile mark. The tour turnaround point is at the sea cave, where you'll enter at Bonaventure Head and Maiden Island.
Depending upon the time, you may stop by to visit the Puffin Colony at Anthony Island. Minke whales are a year long resident of this area. They are seen at any time during the year. Track down the centre of the bay to see any wildlife that does not stick close to the shoreline, such as Porpoises, Shags, Gannets and Shearwaters.
Highlights include stopping at Spaniards Cove to count the many Bald Eagles on the cliffs and Bonaventure Head to fish for a Cod in season. This is a great opportunity to catch your own lunch.
Finish the tour with a viewing of the Cormorants on Skerwink Rock and a view of one of the most Celebrated trails in Canada - the Skerwink Trail, a great view and a terrific hike. Hikers can be seen walking the trail from the boat. Lots of other great unscripted things can happen.
Enjoy another nights accommodation at your lodge, pick up the guitar and play a tune. Someone may even join in and play a tune for you, possibly the owner. Repeat your experience in a kayak which has a totally different perspective. Enjoy a harbor tour leaving form Trinity Beach going to Skerwink Head, view wildlife and sea caves.
