Lighthouse was nice to look at, but it was the puffins that amazed us. They fly from point A to B quickly, land amongst the hundreds of puffins, and are off again. We could have watched for hours. This will be one of the highlights of our two week Newfoundland trip.

Great little visit and amazed to find the lighthouse tour was free (and even open) in the first week of October. Good to learn of the history and take a windswept walk around outside. Along with a visit to Trinity, worth the drive up from St John’s.

Enjoyed the park ambassadors who provided excellent information and commentary about the light house. We even got to see the 209 year old light assembly operate which was cool

A really interesting tour of the lighthouse with knowledgeable guides telling of the history of the people who lived and worked there. Very enjoyable in a great Canadian location.

Great place to visit! We came for a sunset and built a little rock statue to go along with the others. Lots of inclines for walking and climbing.

The whole area is so beautiful; birds to the right, Inukshuks to the left. Drive past Dairy King… do not stop there.

Great lighthouse visit. The interpreters inside did an excellent job explaining the history. I particularly enjoyed the pulley system. The views are also great. One of the best ones yet.

Nice lighthouse, great pictures to be taken in the area with the Puffins and the sea that wash-off on the rocks nearby! Nice view overlooking at the rugged the cliffs

We enjoyed visiting the lighthouse and we also enjoyed the coastal trail. A real bonus was watching the puffins nearby as they came to check things out front eh nearby island.
