Brigus is a small fishing community located in Conception Bay and has been called home by fishermen since at least 1612.  Brigus is the birthplace of Captain Robert A. Bartlett, the master mariner of the arctic, who is famous for having spent more than 50 years mapping and exploring the waters of the Far North. He undertook over 40 Artic expeditions, more than anyone else.

There is a monument to Bartlett at Bishop's Beach is and his home, Hawthorne Cottage, is a National Historic site.  Because of the age of the town and how well persevered the historic sites are, a long walk through town is highly recommended.

Make sure to stay at Brigus accommodations including bed and breakfasts, cottages and manor houses.
