We only visited Bay Bulls because it was the meeting place for the boat tour that we signed up. We mainly drove through the place. Hardly spent much time touring the community. The scenery was quite nice as it was close to the waters.

Lots going on here with the whale and puffin tours and places to stay. Good day trip from St. John’s with a 30 minute drive.

Great views, both of the coastline and oil rigs. This is a major oil and gas base for the area, where oil rigs come in for servicing between jobs, great to look at from the coastline. Also, great coastline.

Drove through the town until the road ends in the northern end. Interesting to see the oil platform in the harbour. In October knot much is open, just enjoy the scenery.
