Pluses:  A "spirited" community; one where the residents looked out for each other. It was a community where no one was a stranger and where everyone was made to "feel at home." It had its traditional foods as well, such as "fish and brewis on the rocks", which was the favorite summertime Sunday dinner; as well, residents enjoyed dried and stuffed squid, salmon boiled in salt beef, baked baby seal with rice gravy, pan-fried cod tongues; and, to top of any meal, almost everyone loved "vinegar tart".

Minuses:  After television was introduced into Harbour Deep, the culture of the community was changed forever. The younger people appeared to be more interested in watching television rather than listening to the stories of the elders. People became more materialistic, and there was an increased interest in what "brand" of clothing one was wearing. An economic divide was the result of families competing to keep up with one another, and the community started to lose some of its charm.

A good place to...  Harbour Deep is still a great place for campers and hikers if they have a means of getting there. Since there is no longer a ferry service, people wishing to do so would have to arrange their own transportation by boat from either Englee or Jackson's Arm.

 There is one lodge in Harbour Deep, which is open during the summer months. Also, some of the former residents go back there to fish during the summer. Information about the lodge can be found on Google.
