The Whale Watcher's location is second to none on the Avalon Peninsula. Day trips can include everything from checking out the newest UNESCO site in Portugal Cove South - Mistaken Point, to whale watching and birding in Bay Bulls or Witless Bay, to hiking the dramatic paths of the East Coast Trail.  For further information on a selection of one day trips to make from the Whale Watcher's apartments - click through to Location from our menu...and there are links to the recommended activities.
