Ocean Quest is a multi-faceted adventure company whose purpose is to share our passion for the unique culture, history, and natural wonders of Newfoundland and Labrador with people from all over the world.

Beginning as a scuba diving charter to four World War 2 wrecks, Ocean Quest has grown to include 4 star accommodations, soft-adventure, bus charters, boat charters, scuba diving training, and cultural experiences. As a small company with significant resources, Ocean Quest prides itself on being able to provide customized itineraries to suit any individual or group, in addition to our existing array of vacation packages.

Our packages include a variety of experiences including: scuba diving, hiking, sea kayaking, escorted cultural tours, boat tours, snorkeling (including snorkeling with humpback whales), and accommodations. These products are fun by themselves, but offering them in Newfoundland offers experiences that travelers can’t get anywhere else. Every year hundreds of humpback whale and icebergs pass our shores, and Ocean Quest brings you closer than anyone else! Beautiful panoramic vistas punctuated by towering rock formations and dramatic shorelines are around every corner. Newfoundland is truly an adventurer’s paradise, with so much so close at hand.

Ocean Quest operates in two locations. Our main facility and lodge are located in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, just minutes from St. John’s International Airport. Our satellite location in Terra Nova National Park, Newfoundland and Labrador’s first National Park, offers sea kayaking, snorkeling, and boat tours during spring and summer months.

Our commitment to sustainable travel

Ocean Quest's sustainability policy came to being in conjunction with our scuba diving activities. As the proud stewards of the four Bell Island shipwrecks, Ocean Quest set about to instilling an marine conservation ethic in order to better protect and share our valuable underwater resources. From this perspective, Ocean Quest endeavors to protect the fragile ecosystems within our waters as well as historic sites such as shipwrecks.

Ocean Quest practices a very strict zero-impact dive policy, where the goal is to "take only pictures and leave only bubbles."

This philosophy has grown with our company, and we take every opportunity to minimize our environmental impact in our lodge, our offices, and on our boats, while striving to make our activities as non-invasive as possible.
