HOLYROOD, TOWN OF HOLYROOD, COASTAL CONNECTIONS LTD.

At this field site in calm, beautiful North Arm, Holyrood, approximately 35 minutes from St. John’s metro region, students can join us aboard our ‘floating classroom’, the M/V Coastal Explorer and also take part in shore-based activities. This arm of Conception Bay is a hotspot of wildlife – sightings of bald eagles, seabirds, jumping tuna, salmon, seals, dolphins and minke whales are common. Students can take part in a variety of hands-on learning activities – from collecting plankton and measuring water samples to learning to fly our remotely operated vehicle (ROV).  The vessel is operated by our partner Coastal Connections Ltd., and shore-based infrastructure has been generously provided by our community partner, the Town of Holyrood.  We offer programming to grade 4-12 classes in spring and fall.
