Located in a sheltered bay, Bay Bulls has been home to many fishermen and a strategic location in early times as it is located just a few miles from the capital, St. John's. The small fishing community of about 1000 people is located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Tourism has become an important part of the community in recent years. Several whale and bird watching establishments, as well as bed-and-breakfast places attract visitors from all over the world.
Bay Bulls was established because of its closeness to the rich fishing grounds on the Grand Banks. Due to its proximity to St. John's the population is becoming more of a bedroom community for people employed there.
