Photographer's Note

Driftwood atop a hill on the East Coast Trail, Blackhead Trail. Cape Spear National Historic Site of Canada, the most easterly point in North America can also be seen in the distance.

According to Parks Canada, This location coupled with a microenvironment produces unique vegetation. Cape Spear's diverse plant community make each visit to Cape Spear a different experience. For example, if you visit in the middle of July, you will see different plants blooming than if you visited just two weeks before.

The majestic and graceful Humpback is the most commonly sighted whale at Cape Spear. Their acrobatic displays always captivate and excite those privileged to catch a view of them. Visitors are also likely to see Minke and Fin whales. During the summer of 2002, Orcas were spotted at least four times with one pod having a minimum of 15 individuals! White-sided dolphins, Beaked dolphins, Porpoises, Harbour seals and Otters have all been seen from the most easterly point as well.
