St. Anthony, Newfoundland Cruise Port

Tucked into the St. Anthony Harbor in Canada's maritime area is the cruise port of St. Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador. Located on the Great Northern Peninsula, St. Anthony is the main service center between northern Newfoundland and southern Labrador. The town’s European settlers have been here since at least the 16th century, when French and Basque fishermen used the harbor as a seasonal fishing station. Although only 2,400 humans call this home, there are plenty of marine residents: This is a popular tourist destination for whale-watching and seals. Along with the whales, St. Anthony claims the "World's Highest Moose Population" and seasonal polar bear visits. While the town has a subarctic climate, the winters are less cold than other parts of Canada, making outdoor activities possible year-round, even in the “Iceberg Capital of the World.” Here are some of our favorite experiences when cruising to St. Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador:
  • Take a boat tour: the northern tip of Newfoundland is one of the world's best places for getting close to a large number of icebergs – which sometimes float right into the nearby harbors. And with the longest season to spot whales within North America; you'll also likely spot dolphins and seals on your journey.
  • Dr. Wilfred Grenfell was an influential figure in the town's history, and a tour of the Grenfell Historic Properties commemorates his legacy and good works. Walk through his home (now a museum), examine the artefacts from his career, and learn how he revamped healthcare for Canadians in the early 20th century.
  • Art lovers will want to see the fantastic ceramic Jordi Bonet Murals, created by the Montreal artist in 1967. You'll find the striking panels near the Grenfell House Museum in the Charles Curtis Memorial Hospital.
  • If you want to see the icebergs but aren't interested in doing so by boat, hike the Dare Devil Trail. At the top is Fishing Point Head, where you can gaze down upon not only icebergs, but whales, seabirds, and nearby villages. There are 400 steps from the start of the trail to the viewing point, so wear good shoes!
