Guided cod fishing tour and the story of Newfoundland’s fishing culture

Leaving from the wharf of Portugal Cove we will take a trip through Conception Bay as we explore the coastline and marine life from the water. The deck crew will entertain you with stories of Newfoundland’s history while we search for a school of Atlantic cod. Hear tales of the significance of the cod fisheries and how it continues to be a vital part of our culture while you catch and release the fish*.

Approximately 2 hours duration.


Fireside beach seafood feast prepared and served by an executive chef

After our return to shore, we will travel by car, about 1 km, where your hosts will guide you to a hidden local beach. The executive chef will welcome guests with delicious appetizers featuring local fare. Sit around the open fire, take in the salty air, and enjoy the evening alfresco while your seafood feast is prepared. We’ll invite you to sit seaside, where you will relish in the million dollar view while you dig in to your bountiful banquet.

Approximately 2 hours duration.
