Golf and Snorkel with… Salmon!


This was just too cool not to share. Have you ever heard of such a thing? And it all takes place in Newfoundland and Labrador, nonetheless! So eco-adventurey, we adore. Golf Newfoundland and Labrador is inviting golf lovers and adrenaline junkies to try their hand at golf and salmon snorkeling with the new West Coast Swing and Snorkel package at Humber Valley Resort. Guests will enjoy rounds of golf amongst the beautiful backdrop of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, as well as adventurous snorkeling with salmon (that’s right… salmon) in the Humber River. The thought itself is giving me a hankering for lox on a bagel. You too?

With the Humber Valley Resort Course, the Blomidon Golf Course and the Gros Morne Resort Course, you can experience an exceptional sampling of Golf Newfoundland’s West Coast offerings (Gros Morne Resort Course features 7,150 yards running through the heart of Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site marked by dazzling formations of exposed mantle rock and oceanic crust). Adventurers are then challenged to take to the currents of the Humber River and snorkel alongside thousands of pink and spring salmon, experiencing this wild migration first-hand. They will also learn about the area’s aquatic structure, fauna and flora that surround the Humber River, all the while keeping a respect of other river users. Wetsuits, masks, fins and snorkel will be provided for all snorkel expeditions.
