This is a 2 hour cruise with live interpretation, between massive billion-year-old cliffs. Ponds atop the plateau feed waterfalls that cascade into the park’s largest lake. A moderate 3 km trail (approx. 45 min walk) leads from the parking lot to the dock. The two boats have canopied decks and on-board washrooms.

A sheltered waiting area, indoor washroom facilities, canteen services, gift shop, and several beautiful picnic areas can be found at dock site.

Pets are not permitted on the boats. Departures depend on wind and weather conditions.

Reservations are recommended. Phone 709-458-2016 or 1-888-458-2016. Visit or drop by the ticket office at the Ocean View Hotel in Rocky Harbour.

Bontours also offers tours of Bonne Bay by catamaran. The ticket office is located on the waterfront at Norris Point. In July and August, a water taxi makes three round-trips daily between Norris Point and Woody Point.

New! Make the challenging climb to the rim of Western Brook Pond itself on a guided hike. The hiking option comes with a wilderness camping experience and freshly-prepared local meals. For more information and to make a reservation visit
