Myrick Wireless Interpretation Centre at Cape Race
Cape Race has been a world-famous landmark for five centuries, appearing on maps made by European explorers as early as 1502. Before the days of wireless navigational aids and GPS, sailors used the sun and the stars to navigate. When mariners sailing from Europe saw Cape Race, they knew they had made it across the Atlantic and were finally able to verify their positions for the first time in weeks, or sometimes even months.

“Julie was an excellent guide. Our tour was a highlight of the entire groups Newfoundland trip. Her expertise of the local geography & must see locations was fantastic. She organized the boat trip with the boat tour and had us there in perfect timing. We got to see the icebergs up-close and the lighthouse that received the final communications from the Titanic. Her tips of where to eat, enjoy the local music & hike were super helpful. Highly recommend this tour. ”

“nothing like anything I have ever seen or done – the vastness of the coastal barrens, towering cliffs, layers of continental plate folding over each other, and fossils covering 2 cliffs that we got to explore – WOW, it felt serene!”
