A Whale of a Week

Each year, 22 species of whales and dolphins come to frolic off our shores, making Newfoundland and Labrador one of the most spectacular whale watching destinations in the world. With the highest population of humpback whales on earth, you're bound to catch a glimpse of at least one of these gentle giants. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, from July 22-28, as we celebrate Whale Week, and pay homage to these huge and majestic mammals. Showtimes may vary.

Visit the Red Bay site along with the province's other UNESCO World Heritage Sites - Gros Morne National Park and L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site - on a 7-day adventure with Maxxim Vacations.
