Ship Cove Travel Guide

The oldest part of the Port de Grave peninsula is probably Ship Cove and by Newfoundland standards is ancient. Fishing activity in Ship Cove goes back to the early 1500’s and was undoubtedly the first of the prime ‘greves’ used by the French because of the shelter and the steady supply of fresh water flowing from the pond down to the beach. Also included in the place names of the area was Upper Ship Cove, Jordan Town and Dan’s Hole.

For fifty years, Ship Cove has been the main business area for modern fresh fish processing. Tourist attractions include the photogenic red rock Ship Cove point and Ship Cove pond - the perfect spot for swimming in summer and hockey in winter. Harbour Hills still maintains its nature barren rugged beauty and remains a rough-foot adventure for the avid hiker.
