Conception Bay South is an amazing place full of adventure. Most visitors don’t realize the incredible diversity of great activities that surround our community. Did you know you can often see gigantic icebergs from our coast? Or that we have an unbelievably active bay full of whales and other marine life?

Take a Drive.
Conception Bay South hugs the coastline for 26 km, stretching from Topsail in the east to Seal Cove in the west. Our ‘Main Street’ area boasts of great places to stop for food, ice cream or coffee, as well as unique, locally owned places to shop. We recommend stopping at Topsail Beach Rotary Park for a picnic, a campfire, unsupervised public swimming, a great playground for kids and amazing view of our spectacular sunsets. This is a popular spot for whale watchers as well!
Take a Boat Tour.
If you’re looking to extend your adventure out over the water we highly recommend taking a boat tour. Have you ever been close enough to feel the spray of a whale or to reach out off a boat and touch an iceberg? Local tour operators offer a variety of tours and packages ranging from those looking for a close encounter to a privately chartered, romantic ride around the bay.
Adventure Under the Ocean.
If you’re looking to go deeper, there are a number of World War II shipwrecks that are absolutely stunning. For those with a tenacious sense of adventure, this is an opportunity to create memories for a lifetime.
