Long Harbour comes by it's name earnestly. It is in fact a long harbour. We put in at Mt. Arlington Heights which is a bit of a ways inside the harbour and we still had a nice paddle to get out. In the distance you can see the group of Iona Islands with Merchant Island and Burke Island being the predominant ones. To the west of this group of Islands in the distance is Argentia where the ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia begins its' run in June to Sept. The ferry in Port Aux Basques runs year round.These bouys are marking some sort of fish farming perhaps mussels.
