Western Brook Pond


2 ½ hour cruise with breathtaking views along the pristine Western Brook Pond. This 10-mile, landlocked fjord is sandwiched between giant cliffs with hanging gardens and waterfalls cascading down to the lake. The views are breathtaking. Reservations are recommended for this highly popular tour. For reservations, call the Ocean View Motel in Rocky Harbour (709-458-2730). Fares are about $23 per adult and $6 for children under 16. Getting to the boat requires about a 45-minute hike from the Western Brook Pond parking lot to the boat dock. The hike, which goes along a boardwalk across a bog where moose are frequently spotted, is worth doing even without the boat trip at the end.
