Add this to your list as a main attraction if you're on the western coast of Newfoundland. We booked the Western Brook Pond Boat tour which is the best way to see the fjords. Warning - there is a long drive into the park after paying a small entry fee (lower for a group rate) and a significant walk from... More

Having recently visited Norwegian fiords, we were a bit sceptical After a plesent easy walk we boarded a boat to be transported to the magical "fiord" which surprised us with natural beauty and size. Well worth and memorable adventure.

This is truly a must see experience. We got to take part in the last tour on the last day of the 2016 season. The crew did a wonderful job Shelby over the loudspeaker with info during the trip, Carter (I believe) entertaining us on the top deck with his endless store of one liners and offers to take pictures...

My husband is from Newfoundland and we always go to Gros Morne every time we visit, but this was the first trip we were able to actually take the boat tour on Western Brook Pond. All I can say is wow! The views are stunning and should not be missed. I think my husband filled his phone with photos. The... More

The Western Brook Pond Boat Tour starts at the end of the Brook Pond Trail (6km return). The scenery was great and the commentary and antics of the crew helped make the trip enjoyable. The weather can play a big part on whether the tour runs or not. I was lucky, tours before and after mine were cancelled due to... More

An amazing attraction to see if you are in western Newfoundland...even if you are anywhere in Newfoundland, make the trip to Western Brook Pond. The crew was incredible and looked after the visitors even with rough waters, high winds and cold. A must see!!

This boat tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to NFLD this past summer. Pictures don't do justice to the vizta'syou enjoy while on the 2 hour boat cruise. The guides are very helpful telling the story of how this place came to be created. So, enjoy the 45 min hike in (and out) and dress for... More

The walk to the site was very enjoyable. We lucked out with fabulous weather that followed considerable rain and so the waterfalls were very picturesque. No matter what direction you turned to take a photo, you were treated to eye candy. The commentary was informative and enjoyable. A great way to spend a few hours in Gros Morne. Please consider...

My wife and I took a Bon Tours boat tour of western Brook Pond and were blown away by the beauty we saw. Bon Tours has a terrific 2 hour tour of the western Brook Pond which I'm sure would rival any fiord in Norway. The views were breathtaking and Bon Tours did an excellent job of narrating the whole...
