... For over five hundred years the fishing industry of crab, lobster, lumpfish and cod has kept this town full of life as well as the tourists that come here which have been increasing year after year.Petty Harbour on the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland Labrador was the chosen location for three different films, one being "Orca", another "A Whale for the Killing" and the last being "Rare Birds". It has the perfect setting, harbour and atmosphere for these types of films.Summer in Petty Harbour is extremely scenic and peaceful and so is winter when the snow has fallen and blanketed the town. Winter can bring in some fairly rough seas, so be sure to check the marine forecast before venturing to Petty Harbour on the Avalon Peninsula.Petty Harbour along the Cape Spear Drive, Highway 11, Avalon Peninsula, Newfoundland, Newfoundland Labrador, Canada.
