Excursion Around the Bay

Excursion Around the Bay is a guide to each community on the Baccalieu Trail Loop. The tour can begin in Trinity Bay at Whitbourne and end at Roaches Line. Or it can begin in Conception Bay at Brigus, entering the Loop at the Veterans’ Memorial Highway, and end at Whitbourne. Each community and town on the Trail is described in order. (See Beginning - Ending of Baccalieu Trail)

The Baccalieu Trail has two main entry points from the Trans Canada Highway.

One is approximately 50 km or 45 minutes from the Marine Atlantic ferry terminal in Argentia and the other is 50 km or 45 minutes from St. John’s International Airport. The closer entry to Argentia is in Whitbourne (Exit 28) via Route 80, a paved road through the communities along the South Shore of Trinity Bay.

The closer entry to St. John’s is via the Veterans’ Memorial Highway (Exit 31), Route 75, which leads to Route 70, a paved road winding along the North Shore of Conception Bay. At Old Perlican, near the tip of the Baccalieu Peninsula, the Route 70 and Route 80 meet, so the traveller can make a complete loop around the Baccalieu Trail.

Visitors also come to the region by boat, since most pleasure boat sailing in the province is in Conception Bay and the area has safe and beautiful harbours and marinas.

There is also a prinable map of the trail on the site.
