  • Maybe not worth the trip just to see this place, but if you're in the neighbourhood why not stop in? Beautiful fishing village with a decent spot to eat at Whalers.
  • What a really fun site to visit. Lots of old village life is in this small spot, you can spend hours there. Keep an eye out for whales too.
  • Nice interpretation center with very friendly staff. Worth the time to watch the movie and tour Saddle Island.
  • An excellent restaurant and a few historic accommodations on site, an excellent spot to visit if passing through
  • The site the most interesting that I have visited for a long time, without drum and trumpet but the interpretive centre us Captivate by the incredible story associated artifacts. The bones of whales more of 400 years, really very impressive to see it along the trails in the surrounding of the site.
