Inn at Happy Adventure Local Attractions

Local Attractions

Happy Adventure Tours explores the rugged coast of Bonavista Bay. This bay is considered by many as the finest boating waters found anywhere in the world.

Sheltered inlets and fjords provide scenic highways to abandoned island settlements of days gone by. Nesting eagles, puffins and wild goats inhabit these islands today.

Come explore some incredible caves, watch giant icebergs and whales, catch salt and fresh water fish, or enjoy activities too many to mention as you design and plan your custom boat adventure. 

Customized trips upon request& by reservation only.
