On a recent trip to Newfoundland, my husband, daughter and I drove out to Cape Spear. I had been several times in the past, but wanted to share it with them. It is an easy 20 minute or so drive from St. John's. Sadly, the day we went it was cold and blustery, but we still enjoyed the views from the most easterly point in Canada. While there we were also treated to the sight of 3 or 4 whales - close enough to know they were whales, but not as close as we might have liked. The staff at Cape Spear are very present and always eager to share their knowledge of the area with visitors. I would definitely include a visit if time allows. We stayed only a short time because of the cold weather, but in the past I have walked the paths and stayed much longer just to enjoy the view and watch for whales.
