The planet's largest gathering of humpback whales off the Newfoundland and Labrador coast is also one of the least studied. We collect census information (tail photographs) and coordinate the collection of data from around the province and contribute this information to Allied Whale, the organization coordinating the global humpback census effort. We also contribute other useful whale data as appropriate to whale scientists around the world. Our developmental website is working to coordinate the collection of whale data off this rich part of the ocean since nobody else is doing it…and because whales are such an important indicator of ocean health.
All of our programs feature local hosts/leaders and all distribute non resident travellers to remote areas where they enjoy local services and hospitality ranging from boat tours to delicious homemade bread and local sub-arctic berry jams.
A National Geographic survey of guest satisfaction looked at the ethic of sustainability and educational emphasis of these very enjoyable excursions, and resulted in National Geographic Adventure Magazine listing our company as one of the best Adventure Travel companies on earth.
