Little Boats of NL Excursion
Little Wooden Boat Experience

Little wooden boats bring so much joy, but they require so much maintenance! Spend an hour or so with us and join the team in caulking a dory or helping to freshen up the paint. Then pop in for a dory ride in the harbour to make certain the seams are tight. Back on dry land, we will share a cuppa tea and a sweet treat.

Wharf Walk History Tour

Join us on a 2-hour walking tour and learn about the unique history & fishing heritage of Petty Harbour. Learn a heritage rope skill and keep what you weave. Includes a visit to the Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium, and a stop at Tinker’s Ice Cream Shop! Ask about adding an in-season boil up or campfire at Island Rooms! 

Hike to The Magic Tree

A 2-hour hiking tour to explore the paths around Petty Harbour. These paths brought neighbours together, allowed hunters to reach their traps, and provided access to berries. Today,  at the end of this leisurely jaunt is a magic tree, with branches that welcome all of us beneath! Here, we will enjoy a hot beverage, nibble a local berry dessert, and share stories about the little treasures that we notice along the way.
