Coastal Connections is an award winning Marine Eco Tour Company offering unforgettable ocean experiences. We respect the ocean and the animals that call it home. Our goal is to inspire awe and understanding about this wild and wonderful world below the surface. The ocean is a deep and mysterious place, full of life big and small. Every creature has a story and at Coastal Connections we want to share those stories to foster a sense of wonder and love for the ocean.

We offer a variety of tours including our signature Creature Quest Tour, cod fishing and shark tagging excursions.  We sail out of the picturesque Holyrood in Conception Bay where we are surrounded by stunning coastlines and abundant wildlife.

Our Transport Canada approved passengers vessels ensure comfort and safety for our guests, and highly trained staff provides a one of a kind experience. We keep our groups small allowing for a truly unique adventure.
