St. John's Skyline

Port Overview

A legendary seaport perched on the edge of the continent, St. John’s has a rich 500-year seafaring history.  Keep the legend alive by cruising into our sheltered harbour as did countless merchants, navy men, and explorers before you.  With all this experience, we know how to roll out the red carpet.  At dockside, we’ll have traditional musicians, along with our favourite VIP’s: a Newfoundland dog and a Labrador Retriever.  Our award winning Ambassador volunteers will be on site to provide you with advice, directions, and maps.  Just look for their signature red vests with the “question mark” on the back.  You’ll quickly find that the St. John’s waterfront is as colourful as its heritage, thanks to the Victorian row houses affectionately known as Jelly Bean Row.  Docking right in the heart of downtown, you’re just steps from boutique shopping, fine dining, cafés, and pubs.  A perfect blend of English and Irish, New World and Old, the Port City of St. John’s exudes a style and vitality that’s as fresh as the sea breeze.
