Seldom Harbour, Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Well protected mole harbour with excellent shelter from all wind directions. Plenty of wharf space all around the harbour and a floating pontoon at the head of the harbour. The second wharf in on the southern side is reserved for pleasure craft with fresh water, electricity and showers in the Maritime Centre block. 2.5 m alongside the quay at low water.  Small convenience store, cafe and petrol station at the head of the harbour, with a larger supermarket and liquor store approx 30 minutes walk away in the eastern bay of the harbour. The red buoy shown on the charts just inside the harbour as you enter was not in place at the time of our visit.

Whilst the facilities in Seldom are arguably better, and it is more accessible  in bad weather than Fogo harbour, Seldom lacks the charm of its northern counterpart. If you only have time to visit one harbour on Fogo Island we would firmly recommend  Fogo harbour, weather conditions permitting.
