Newfoundland - Looking for Comments on Planned September Trip

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Newfoundland in mid-September to early October this year. We are spending some time in PEI before we head to Newfoundland. Is it correct that the Argentia ferry only runs until the end of September? If so, I guess we would have to cross to Argentia first and depart from Port aux Basques. We are planning some time around St. John's - Avalon - Bonavista. Want to go to Change Islands and Fogo and Twillingate. Is Baie Verte or Fleur de Lys worth a stop? We won't see any icebergs, but will we see any whales at that time of year? We will also travel to Gros Morne, Port aux Port Peninsula and then on to Port Aux Basque. Will try to go up the North Coast to L'ans Aux Meadows if time allows. We will have about 20-21 days give or take.
So - is late Sept - early October too late to travel to Gros Morne? Will things still be open or closing for the season? What can anyone tell me about the ferries. Mostly I am concerned about the timing of our trip. Has anyone travelled in Nfld into October who can provide some information?
