Visit Canvas Cove Bistro and Twillingate Art Gallery on our premises.Two hour tours departing daily at 9:30am, 1:00pm, 4:00pm and 7:00pm with traditional and local music, snacks and full bar service.

Went on this tour today. It is a must do while in the Twillingate area. There were so many iceburgs to see and it was absolutely breathtaking. The staff and crew were very friendly. Well worth tje money.

We wanted to do the iceberg tour in Twillingate but unfortunately there was too much pack ice so the tour was cancelled. Nothing we could blame the company for! Staff was still nice and helpful though.

Hello. My first Trip Advisor Post. Hubby & I are planning a trip to Twillingate early June 2016 and will be taking a Boat tour to see Hopefully Icebergs and Whales. We are wondering about what is the best time to book a tour... 9:30 am 1 am or 4 pm. What have others found was good. I know we can't predict the weather but just some feedback would be helpful. Thanks

Google "Twillingate iceberg season" for the answer to the first question. As for "top rated hotel", a little searching in TripAdvisor will give you that answer.
