As we re-open and move forward from COVID-19 our tour schedule will continue to grow and change. For the coming season we will be offering our Gardens Explorer Tour, this is two hours is duration and covers the southern half of the Bay of Fires coastline. It is our most popular tour year round and offers passengers the best chance of conducting a tour as it is less weather dependent and requires fewer passengers to make the tour viable.
We are currently offering tours 4 days a week, with additional tour added on a demand basis as visitors number continue to grow. The Gardens Explorer tour covers 17kms of pristine coastline, the history and natural beauty will be highlighted as we traverse our way north along the Bay of Fires Conservation Area.
We have recently added our Sloop Rock Express tour back into our schedule. This tour will be run in the afternoons during our busier times and also on occasion when the summer tidal conditions prevent us from conducting a longer tour. If you don’t see the Gardens Explorer tour available on your preferred date, why not try the Sloop Rock Express for a thrilling one hour tour, taking in our beautiful beaches, lichen covered boulders and the famous Sloop Rock!BOOK A TOUR NOW
All being well our Bay of Fires Discovery tour will recommence in October 2021 and passengers will once again have the opportunity to experience all 28kms of this break taking coastline.
All our tours offer an offshore experience giving you a panoramic view of the coastline, just as the early explorers would have encountered when they first set eyes on our white sandy shores. Different times of year bring a diverse range of sea life, including Humpback and Southern Right Whales, Dolphins, Fur Seals, Pelicans, Albatross, Pacific Gulls, Shearwaters and Sea Eagles.
The weather and sea conditions can sometime require us to run a shorter tour in place of those scheduled. Whilst we understand this can be disappointing for some passengers, this decision is always made with passenger comfort and safety in mind. Tidal conditions can also impact our tour schedules, please pay close attention to the departure time when making your booking, as schedules are varied based on the water levels at our dock.
Rest assured, if we can conduct the tour on which you have booked we will do so. Changes are only made when required, however sometimes need to be made at short notice or even mid tour, your understanding is appreciated.
