St. Paul Island is currently a haven for many pelagic birds. It is also an excellent location for radio operation and history buffs
who are interested in the many shipwrecks and the old foundations in Governor's Cove.
We offer landings and oceanside tours of
the Island, with the rates varying due to the season. The rates are flat rates and stay the same regardless of the size of the group.
The rates vary throughout the season because we need to cancel our regular whale watching schedule to accommodate a St. Paul Island
We caution anyone who wishes to visit the island; trip planning must be open ended because the weather en route to the
island can be unpredictable. On the same note, departure times will vary depending on the weather. Because of this, we encourage people
to plan for an oceanside tour, opposed to a landing.
Furthermore, special permission from the Canadian government is needed
to land on the island. Because we are ferrying people more so than physically traversing the island, a group leader of the passengers
is responsible for gaining the permission. We happily put people in contact with the correct government agencies responsible for gaining
permission, and it is a rather simple task to complete.
