Full of interesting things to look at, items we had not seen before. My husband was able to go Cod jigging with Skipper Dave, something he had never done before. Loved the museum and the store.

For $5 you can walk through a series of old buildings with information and artifacts from the fishing heyday. You can also book a fishing trip for cod. We met fishermen who had their limit in 1 hour (5 cod)

Perfect morning! Captain Boyd was a gracious, knowledgeable, and fun host. We saw beautiful scenery and caught lobsters in cages. It was interesting, and the time passed much too quickly. Captain Boyd cares deeply about what he does, his heritage, and Newfoundland.
