Cape Spear Whale Festival

Cape Spear

To celebrate the arrival of thousands of whales every year, Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Site and partners host the annual Cape Spear Whale Festival with special events, touch tanks, kid's activities, and – of course - whale watching! 22 species of whales migrate to the Newfoundland and Labrador coast between May and September to feast on capelin, krill and squid. The cliff- top setting of Cape Spear lighthouse with its panoramic ocean view is a prime spot to watch the marine action!
