ROM Great Whales Contest

Enter to win a trip for two to Newfoundland & Labrador to see Whales, Birds and Bergs!

Prize includes flights, an 8-day itinerary including accommodations, rental car, boat tours (in search of whales, birds and bergs), seaside picnics, historic sites, city tours, museums and an afternoon kitchen party.

Also, don’t miss our newest exhibition Great Whales: Up Close and Personal, showcasing our beloved blue whale alongside two new iconic North Atlantic skeletons: the critically endangered right whale and the deep diving sperm whale.

Grand Prize

Every year, the world’s largest migrating population of humpback whales visit the shores of Newfoundland and Labrador to frolic, feed, and dance in the Atlantic Ocean. With them, come 21 other species of whales and dolphins, all ready to pull off a spectacular show for you as they leap, flash their fins, and slap their tails on the water. The province is also the seabird capital of North America, where you will see more than 500,000 Atlantic puffins up close at Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. Top it all off with watching 10,000-year-old giant icebergs making their journey down through Iceberg Alley from Greenland, and you have the trip of a lifetime!

  • Round trip airfare from major Canadian airport
