Summer has ended!!

WOW! What a summer! I can’t believe it’s over. The weather this summer has been amazing. Hopefully we will continue to have the good weather into the fall. We are sad to say good bye to the 2012 season but we do look forward to starting up in 2013 with some new addtions to Western Brook Pond and Bonne Bay.

We look forward beginning a new 15 yerar contract with Parks Canada starting in 2013. With this new contract comes some cahnges as well.

Western Brook Pond will have a new Catamaran and a new hi-speed shuttle for hikers. The times for the tours will be changing, and we will have a boat available for specialized group tours and the hi-speed shuttle will be used to drop visitors off at the head of the pond for 1-2 night stays.

Stay tuned for some new changes to happen in the new season including Cod Fishing in Bonne Bay!!

Bonne Bay tour during TTT festival May 2010

Here is an excerpt from a letter the The Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland & labrador sent to us after they had participated in one of our boat tours in May 2010. The letter was written by John C. Crosbie, PC,OC,ONL,QC

 It said:

Dear Captain Williams:

Jane and I and Margie and David Winter really enjoyed our trip on the Emm-Cat last Sunday and our whole three day visit to Norris Point for a great Festival known as the Trails, Tales and Tunes Festival.

The voyage we had around Bonne Bay and the entertainment in the musical area was great and the chance to travel with you and hear of your experiences was most enjoyable as well. You are certainly a very fine Newfoundland entrepreneur and doing a great deal for our local economy…… Once again many thanks for a very enjoyable trip on your vessel and the opportunity to have you explain variuos features of the magnificent Bonne Bay.
