Take to the ocean or land and tour the coast of beautiful Bonne Bay and the back country of Gros Morne

Surround yourself with rugged scenery and learn of the lobster fishery firsthand from a master fisherman. Try your hand at taking up a lobster trap, learn to jig a cod fish, or simply sit back, relax and breathe in the awe-inspiring scenery. Later, pull into a secluded bay and enjoy a twilight lobster boil on the beach. Tour the back country of Gros Morne by ATV and enjoy the wildlife and scenery while enjoying a Traditional Newfounland Mug up. Oceanside Excursions is a unique Newfoundland cultural experience not to be missed.

Oceanside Excursions is owned and operated by local fisherman Jody Caines, his wife Jenielle and their three daughters – Jeana, Janine, and Jenny.
Jody started fishing in 1999. He holds an Environmental Science Degree and a Fishing Masters IV certificate. He is the latest in a long line of fishermen – his father, grandfather and great grandfather all having fished Newfoundland’s waters. When not on the water, Jody loves snowmobiling and off-road biking.
Jenielle hails from the town of Mose Ambrose, NL – population around 70 – and her childhood was spent on and around the ocean. When not busy being a Mom to Jeana, Janine, and Jenny, Jenielle works as the Postmaster in Rocky Harbour, NL. In her spare time she loves boating, seadooing, and bonfires in the back yard.
Jeana, Janine and Jenny
Rounding out the Caines family’s full compliment of J’s, Jeana, Janine, and Jenny are Newfoundland born and (being) raised! They often help out Mom and Dad and sure know their way around a boat!
