Sightseeing

There are many things to see and do while taking one of our oat charters. From whale watching to iceberg viewing you will not have a dull moment with us.

The day trip to Battle Harbour is a memorable one that is steeped in history and beauty. Battle Harbour is a summer fishing station, formerly a permanent settlement, located on the Labrador coast. Battle Harbour was for two centuries the economic and social centre of the southeastern Labrador coast. Mercantile saltfish premises first established there in the 1770s developed into a thriving community that was known as the Capital of Labrador. It fell into decline following reductions in the cod fishery and a major fire in 1930, and was abandoned as a permanent settlement following government resettlement activity in the 1960s. Today it is home to a wonderful restoration project that has restored the old cottages for overnight accommodations and there is the Battle Harbour Inn also that serves meals.
