    Access Roads

    Scenary View along the Charlottetown Access Road

    When you are driving along southeastern Labrador, there are three access roads built if you are going to see Pinsent's Arm, Charlottetown and St. Lewis. The Pinsent's Arm road is not on the map I have on the main page but it's been built since then and accessible from Charlottetown.

    I am recommending instead of buzzing from one end of the region to the other you should drop in these communities and have a look. They are all different and unique.

    The Pinsent's Arm Access Road is 25 kilometers, the Charlottetown Access Road is 30 kilometers and the St. Lewis Access Road is 32 kilometers.

    As you can see from the picture it is beautiful driving into Charlottetown and getting great views of St. Micheal's Bay. At the far end of St. Lewis you are in a great position to spot some great icebergs!

    Speed boat in Charelottetown

    Many of the local residents in this region use speed boats to either make a living fishing, for leasure trips and touring around and essential transportation in Black Tickle, Williams Harbour and Norman Bay.

    Here in this picture a local resident in Charlottetown is buzzing around. Getting out in boat is always fun for me, if you are interested its a great activity, you should try to get out in boat as well!!

    Gravel Grade Roads

    Southern Trans-Labrador Highway

    When you are traveling throughout southeastern Labrador you will be driving on a high grade quality gravel road.

    You can see a picture of it in this picture.

    The road is very good and smooth but like any gravel road you should take a little extra precaution.

    For example dust can reduce visability, rocks can break windsheilds and if you do have an accident you are in a relatively remote area before help will arrive, so take your time. Don't be in a crazy rush, enjoy the scenery!

    South Feeder

    This tip is not going to help you plan your trip but I am interested in your comments.

    As you can see when they built the road through southeastern Labrador a lot of the rivers where made severly much narrow.

    There is a lot of debate about this in the local area pertaining to the potential environmental impacts.

    In this picture you can see a location called south feeder between Cartwright and Charlottetown. I am interested to know what you might think of this if you have any particular expertise especially.

    View of the Alexis River

    For me when you are driving from Cartwright south toward Port Hope Simpson I always like this view the best.

    Here in this picture you are starting to get close to the community of Port Hope Simpson and this is an elevated view of the Alexis River.

    It's not the same going the other direction obviously. I hope you enjoy the picture.

    Sir Robert Bond

    If you are driving to Southeastern Labrador there are a couple vessels you are going to need to know about. Those are the Sir Robert Bond and the MV Apollo.

    I just provided a web site for Coastal Labrador Marine Services. Here you can set updated information times and rates.

    To get to Black Tickle, Norman Bay or William's Harbour by boat you will need to take a smaller ferry. Check out this web site for this information.

    These are the only three communities out of eleven that can not be reached by road.
