Great tour of Western Brook Pond. Just enough info from the guides Staff on board very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended but be aware there is a 30-45 minute walk from the parking lot to the dock.

Is it possible to buy lunch at the boatdock or should we bring a picnic lunch with us? I am diabetic, so I have to eat at certain times.
