Be A Fisherman For A Day


Step onto our fishing premise for the day and immerse yourself in the life of a fisherman!

Your day begins on the water, fishing from a dory, and learning the marks with a compass.

Then try your hand at filleting your catch,

cutting cod tongues or salting splits for the flake.

Create a painting of your biggest fish!

Finally, make a meal of fisherman's stew and while dinner is bubbling away, share stories in the stage as you knit a net, weave a withe & rind a stick.

Something for everyone in the family!

Adult $225.00 & Youth under 12 $150.00

Motion Bay Excursion


Even if we aren't fishing, there are lots to explore in the waters outside Petty Harbour!  Join us for a  Motion Bay Excursion!  In the Winter, there may be many turrs - and one may need a rescue! The Spring brings pans of ice that announce the grand arrival of icebergs! In the Summer, as the sun warms and smooths the water, we can explore the shallow areas and caves! Whales and puffins, too, show up in the bay for the Summer Party! The Fall brings jellyfish and ocean sunfish, and dolphins chasing squid!
Adult $60.00 & Youth under 12 $35.00
