The Gaspé Peninsula is often referred to as “the end of the land”. Or, according to the Mi'gmaq term Gespeg, “land's end”. But the Gaspé Peninsula has long been connected to the outside world. The Gaspé Peninsula witnessed the beginnings of life on land, the great discoveries, and the colonial wars between the French and the British. And what if the Gaspé Peninsula was not the end of the land? The sea is what links all these separate parts, all these small and large “land’s ends”. Where Worlds Meet, let the Gaspesie carry you away.
The deep blue sea is the history of the Gaspé told through fifteen sailing vessels, from the drakkars of the Vikings to the seafaring canoes of the Mi’gmaq to Gaspésiennes. It is also the life journey of people of the sea: cod fishers, whalers and captains.
The Gaspésienne no 20 is an authentic 60-foot cod fishing boat, installed on the site of the Musée de la Gaspésie and restored by the community. The visitor will be able to climb aboard and put himself in the shoes of the cod fishermen of the time. A unique experience!
