Craft Store

During your visit to Isle aux Morts, spend some time with our local artisans at their work sites to observe and participate in various displays and demonstrations such as boat building, quilting, rug hooking, knitting, crocheting, model constructing, rope tying, etc.

Diving

The coastline of Isle aux Morts is dotted with many shipwrecks. An area just off our coast has been designated as a Provincial Historic Site. This is where the Mushrow Astrolabes were recovered. These are two very rare navigational instruments which date back to the early 1600s.

Great Outdoors

The Isle aux Morts area has many attractions for the casual or serious outdoors enthusiast. Isle aux Morts River (on Route 470) provides some of the best salmon fishing anywhere. The area is dotted with many ponds where trouting can be an adventure. Hunting for moose, caribou, and rabbit is a sportsman's dream.

Harvey Gravesite

Pay your respects to this heroic family by visiting the gravesite of George Harvey and several members of his family who are buried on a hill overlooking the harbor and across from the local church and post office. Ann's gravesite is a mystery but many of the locals feel she is buried here with her family in an unmarked grave.

Hiking Trails

Keep your eyes open for local flora (including the pitcher plant) which can be found along the Boat Cove Trail. The Harvey Trail is a gravel, coastal trail honoring the site of the daring rescues by the George Harvey family.

The Walter's House

Visit The Walter's House museum - which was the first church and school in the Isle aux Morts community. Later, a small addition was built on to have a store attached to the house.
