The Harvey Family Legend
Newfoundland DogIn 1828, the Harvey family, with the aid of their Newfoundland dog, "Hairyman", rescued 163 people from the sinking brig "Despatch", shipwrecked on the rocks off Isle Aux Morts. They made another daring rescue in 1838, saving 25 crew members from the Glasgow ship, the "Rankin". The present day Coast Guard Ship "Ann Harvey", is named in memory of the daughter of George Harvey who, while she was only 17 years old, assisted in these heroic deeds. [Read more]

Isle aux Morts is a historic community, located on the picturesque Southwest Coast of Newfoundland. It is a 16 km drive from the Marine Atlantic ferry terminal - located in the town of Port aux Basques.

Our coastline is dotted with many shipwrecks which makes it a diver's paradise. An area just off the coast of Isle aux Morts has been designated 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.

Our town boasts waterfront wharves and walking trails which showcase breaktaking scenery and nature at it's best. Situated on the rugged shoreline of Newfoundland's South West Coast, Isle aux Morts is a perfect destination for visitors looking for abundant photo opportunities.

Experience the Walters House museum - which is in an old-style house exhibiting life in the past in Isle aux Morts. This house acted as the first school and church in Isle aux Morts.

Isle aux Morts has a rich Atlantic heritage. It was named after a formerly inhabited nearby island and is a reference to many shipwrecks off the coast. Isle aux Morts translates from French into English as "Island of the Dead". [more]
