How to Find Us

Race Headquarters at "The Forge", Moser River
#8 Naugler's Settlement Road (1st left east of Moser River Bridge)
or enter at the Prospector's, 35 Parker's Loop, Old Hwy #7
Phone/Fax: 902.347.2602

Coming from Halifax on the Dartmouth side (1 hour & 45 min.), follow the signs marked Eastern Shore or Marine Drive until you arrive at Highway #7/Musquodoboit. You will be travelling on Route #107 (the fastest), #207 (most scenic) or old #7 through Cherrybrook and Preston.

These highways all converge in Musquodoboit. Continue east down Highway #7 along the Eastern Shore through Sheet Harbour and Port Dufferin. This is the gateway to the Bay of Islands region. Follow Highway #7 another 20 minutes until you arrive at Moser River at Necum Teuch Bay. From the bridge looking east, you can't miss the "Prospector Cottage" at the Bay of Islands Centre -- it's just in front of you on the hill (look for the 'big salmon' chainsaw sculpture).
