Saddle Island Trail - Parks Canada Red Bay National Historic Site

Red Bay

Jun 15 - Oct 2

Take a short ferry ride to Saddle Island and immerse yourself in Red Bay’s rich Basque history through a guided or self-guided tour of the world’s most complete example of early industrial-scale whaling. Visit the remnants of the ovens where whale blubber was rendered into oil, cooperages where oil barrels were assembled and the graves of some 130 whales who died here four and a half centuries ago. Beautiful views around the Island.
