Our own Todd Chafe's artistic interpretation of what the new fishing premise at Island Rooms of Petty Harbour will look like from the harbour waters. Be a part of building the dream from the twine loft to the stage to the flake to the little boats! Construction has started. Come help rind sticks! Island Rooms will be wheelchair accessible, too!
Getting kids back to the water
in Petty Harbour!
These wonderful pictures are of "wharf rats" playing along the waterfront in Petty Harbour.
Help us create a new generation of "wharf rats!"
All grown up? Not at all. Join us on the wharf!
Everyone who is young-at-heart will have a grand time learning about life in the Harbour.
