Take to the ocean and tour the coast of beautiful Bonne Bay, 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. Oceanside Excursions is a unique Newfoundland cultural experience not to be missed.

Lobster fishing starts with ‘J’!

Oceanside Excursions is owned and operated by local fisherman Jody Caines, his wife Jenielle and their three daughters – Jeana, Janine and Jenny.
Jody
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
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!
