Around one hour from St. John’s in the south of Trinity Bay, South Dildo is a former whaling station and the skeletons of many of these large animals lie scattered on the seabed close to the shore. Accessed from the wharf or the adjacent beach, the site depth reaches approximately 66ft/20m and is easily navigated. Alternatively, a boat can be used to reach some of the deeper areas farther away.

While exploring these sites, you’re bound to see whale skulls, ribs, jawbones, and vertebrae. Varying in size and quality, many of them are still easily recognizable as a part of the history of the area.
