  • This research facility offers wonderful tours which worths a stop here. Great place for an indoor activity, specifically on a rainy day. Tour guides are co-op students who are studying in related fields. Nice view from here, specially on a clear day when you can see further.
  • Very very very worth the visit. Wonderful staff who do an amazing job educating and showing their research
  • I had the privilege to be a Marine Biology Interpreter at this facility for a co-op term at my University. Even returning to the facility years later, the staff were friendly, educational, and presentable. Bonne Bay Marine Station is an excellent facility if you are wanting to learn more about the history of the area, and it's local species.
  • Wonderful place for the whole family! Very informative and great family rates enjoyed it very much and will be going back. Beautiful scenery as well.
  • Well worth a visit. Exceptional site on the water, nestled in a working town, and though compact was informative and enjoyable. Bring a lunch, there's a nice beach adjacent. If we had time we'd try the kayaking outfit next door.
