How to get there
When driving into Tors Cove from St. John's you need to pass right through the town. As you're driving, you will see a black pipe line on your right followed by a rocky burm and guard rail on the road. We are the first gravel driveway on the right. If you pass the signs: 'Colbert's Puffin and Whale Tours' and 'Bauline East', you have gone too far. You would have to turn around and make a left onto the second driveway on your left.
