Fisheries and Land Resources


The main activity that occurs in the reserve is hiking out to see the fossils-by scientists and the public. The coast can be accessed by walking from the highway (Route 430) across barrens and rocky ground to the coast. An entry permit is not required.

During the summer, whales can be spotted from the coast. Berry picking also occurs in season.

Visitors making the trip are advised to:

  • Dress for open-country hiking-there is a high probability you will encounter cool wind and fog
  • Carry a compass
  • Exercise caution near and on the coastal rocks-they can be slippery
  • Read and abide by the Rules & Regulations

Hunting and fishing are permitted in the reserve, in the appropriate seasons and with valid licences.
