    This was amazing! We were worried when we first pulled up (parking lot is around the corner) and saw only seagulls. As we got closer, we realized there were a bunch of puffins! We were there mid morning. Bring binoculars, especially if they are on the cliff away from the one you're standing on. There was a knowledgeable and kind gentleman at the entrance building. A donation bin is there as well. The puffins are so cute and funny! Also, there are a few root cellars at the site and parking lot. Would also recommend the puffin souvenir shop, a two minute drive from the site. Family owned and crested and so friendly! Purchased close up, professional photos (cash only) for a fair price.

    The interesting part of this monument is the story behind it. If you are not from Newfoundland or Canada, most likely you are not familiar with the stories of people going sealing. To most people nowadays it is just cruel, however, the monument shows that it was also very risky for people back then.

    Highly recommend. No formal trail but fairly well worn tracks in most places, noting however there are very shear cliffs with no barriers. Incredible scenery and untouched landscape. Look out for puffins and other sea life! Relatively easy walk, flat.

    We didn't make the entire trip to Catalina, but every metre of this enchanted place was spectacular. It is an easy hike, through, moss, wind-swept hills, overlooking the gorgeous ocean and the rocky cliffs. One more reason to travel to Newfoundland.

    This is at a shooting range and often people are shooting. So if you do not have hearing protection or gave a fear of firearms, this isn't for you.

    Literally, it is a trench made if modern wood, that is supposed to look like a trench from the first world war. Just a trench at a shooting range and nothing more.

    The people that run this store are very very nice. Our son and the owner connected and the necklace that our son was given by the owner never comes off his neck.

    Incredible shop run by the talented moose antler and whale bone carver Wilbur Hobbs. In addition to original sculptures by Mr. Hobbs there is a wide variety of other craft items as well. I love love love the authenticity of this shop! Mr. Hobbs demonstrated his art and is a fountain of knowledge regarding the island's history including the great Newfoundland sealing disaster of 1914 in which dozens and dozens of hard-working men were stranded on the North Atlantic ice floes in a violent storm.

    Picked up some local folk art, hand painted Jelly Bean House rocks, and a few other items. Everything was locally made with the exception of some chains and was more than fairly priced. One of the best souvenir shops we visited in Nfld or anywhere else for that matter.
