The 20-year-old fell from a cliff on Isaac Cove, N.S., on Saturday.
She was able to stay away from the water due to low tide.
Trinity-Conception RCMP conducted the rescue with the assistance of the North Shore Fire Department and a number of community residents.
A boat was deployed from the Ochre Pit Cove wharf into the area, which took the woman from the cove to a waiting ambulance.
She was then taken to Carbonear General Hospital.
