Cape St. Mary's is one of the largest seabird rookeries in the world. During the breeding season, it is home to 24,000 Northern gannet, 20,000 black-legged kittiwake, 20,000 common murre, and 2,000 thick-billed murre. In addition, more than 100 pairs of razorbill, more than 60 pairs of black guillemot, plus double-crested and great cormorant, and Northern fulmar nest there.

You will walk meadows above magnificent cliffs to arrive at the edge of a sea stack covered in gannets and look down to waves crashing on rocks 100 meters below, while birds sour and circle on the currents above and below you.
