Fogo Island is the largest offshore island of Newfoundland. There are several quaintly-named communities on Fogo including Fogo, Seldom-Come-By, Joe Batt's Arm, and Tilting. The cod fishery was the historic lifeblood of Fogo and is now partly replaced by tourism. Fogo Island is accessible by provincial ferry (in summer, the MV Capt. Earl W. Winsor) that has a hard time keeping up with peak demand.
