Make seeing Western Brook Pond a priority for your visit to Gros Morne, as there is nothing quite like it anywhere else. Hidden waterfalls, moose, and some of the most gorgeous scenery to be found anywhere. It is a simple 45-minute walk from the entrance...More

There is only one company that holds the tour so no competition. A bit pricey at $62/person. However, as this is the major site here it's best to make reservations days before. We were lucky to have 2 xtra tours added as it was a...More

Lovely tour of Western Brook Pond, educational about geologic events and just stunning views. The walk to the tour was also enjoyable with great signage along the way, but the tour is so popular sometimes parking can be hard to find

It is a relatively easy 3 km trek into Western Brook Pond. The boat ride is about 2 hours and the 11-year old in our group got antsy as the time went on. Views are spectacular. Boat was far too overloaded which made it difficult...More

What is the likelihood that I will need a reservation for the Western Brook Pond boat tour in the first week of June 2017?

You should be ok but they only sail at 12.30. It cost nothing to make a reservation as they dont take credit cards on line
how heavy is the ate wheelchair that is available thru Parks Canada in rocky Harbour and will it go in a passenger car trunk?
