Located about 200 km southwest of St. John's, Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve also known as "the Cape" is one of Newfoundland and Labrador's major seabird colonies. During the breeding season, it is home to 24,000 Northern gannet, 20,000 black-legged kittiwake, 20,000 common murre, and 2,000 thick-billed murre. In addition, more than 100 pairs of razorbill, more than 60 pairs of black guillemot, plus double-crested and great cormorant, and Northern fulmar nest there.

What makes it so spectacular, however, is that all these birds can be seen from land, as close as 10 metres away.

You can visit this site in a day trip from St. John's, but it is highly recommended that you take an extra few days to explore the Cape Shore and Irish Loop areas as well.
