Much more than just a boat tour, guests learn about this magnificent place, participate in hands-on activities, and view the wonders of our natural environment...in the sky, on the land, and particularly, in the sea. We bring aboard whelk pots, crab pots and a lobster pot to get you involved. We even have an ROV on board so you can dive without getting wet!
On board the fully equipped, 13-m (42-ft) Coast Guard-certified, and astonishingly comfortable, "MV Coastal Explorer," you will share in captivating scientific data collection, enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the area, and realize that learning (at any age) can truly be fun!

Coastal Connections is committed to the principles of sustainable marine eco-tourism. We want to share with our clients the sense of wonder and awe that we experience in Terra Nova National Park and the surrounding coastal ocean. At the same time we want to ensure that these ecosystems are not damaged by our activities. We want to help them remain in as pristine a state as possible, not only for our children but for the many generations to come.
