We’re Waiting For You

We welcome you to our town of Aquaforte and hope you enjoy your visit soon to see the beauty of our landscape, hiking trail and to  witness the various wildlife. Our town is on the south shore of Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The town’s economy has always rested primarily on fishing. The harbour has been used as a seasonal fishing station since the 1670s. British and French hostilities played out in harbors all along the Avalon Peninsula in the 18th century, and Aquaforte was no exception. However, the first permanent residents did not settle in Aquaforte until the early 1800s. It is located 4 miles from Ferryland and 40 miles from St. John’s by water. It has one of the safest harbours on the island so if you are sailing this way drop in!
