Welcome to Captain Dave's Boat, Iceberg and Whale Watching Tours!
As a long time fisherman and the licensed tour boat operator, Capt. Dave is well equipped to give you an unforgettable experience on the water. Whether to experience the majestic icebergs as they make their way south; catch a cod; help Capt. Dave haul his lobster pots or see the giant humpbacks and various whales breach as they feed on schools of caplin, Capt. Dave has the knowledge and experience to make your trip an adventure to treasure for years to come.
As a certified tour boat captain, David specializes in a small group, personalized tours to view the magnificent icebergs that often frequent the main tickle just off from his fishing interpretation centre, Prime Berth.
In addition to iceberg tours, David will take you to explore the rugged coastline of Main Tickle, and view the thousands of nesting birds on the Baccy Islands, on your way to Gut Tickle and through the Salt Hr. Canal to the picturesque fishing village of Herring Neck.
Your view of the fishing stages from the water will be a highlight of your Newfoundland & Twillingate vacation. In addition, David can take you to the little fishing village of Tizzard's Harbour, his hometown, where he has set his lobster trap since the age of six. From May to October, you could also fish for cod during your tour!!!
Tourists who take boat tours with Capt. Dave will find his extensive experience as an award-winning professional photographer helpful in getting the best angles for their photographs- whether it be of bergs, whales or the amazing features of our rugged coastline.
