Learn about the famous explorer Captain Cook during this informative tour that traces the coastal route he explored over 230 years ago. Before going on to discover New Zealand, Australia, and Hawaii, Captain Cook learned his skills as a navigator and captain in Newfoundland. The route you will follow today includes delightful fishing villages inhabited by people of English, French, and Aboriginal ancestry. Among the highlights you will enjoy are the rugged coastal scenery and inland forests, along with the possibility of sighting some seals and other wildlife.
A stop will be made at Lark Harbor where you will be treated to a sampling of Newfoundland flavors with a coffee/tea break served by the friendly locals. This visit in the small community of Lark Harbor always proves to be a high point of the tour and gives participants a chance to meet the genial residents.
Before returning to the pier, you will stop at the dramatic lookout site of Cook's Look-out National Historic Site where you can even see your ship. Be sure to bring your camera to capture some beautiful photos.
