Arctic Bay Floe Edge

Arctic Bay Floe Edge

Travel to the Floe Edge of Arctic Bay, at the Eastern mouth of the Northwest passage. In Spring, the frozen expanses of sea ice begin to crack and break away to sea. The Floe Edge, where sea ice meets open water, is one of the most ecologically diverse areas of the Arctic. Lancaster Sound is home to large populations of beluga and narwhlas. A bowhead whale may occasionally be spotted. Pods of male narwhal, withe their famous elongated tooth, may also be observed. If we are lucky, we'll spot the majestic polar bear, in search of seals. From our comfortable basecamp, we'll make daily forays to the edge with binoculars and cameras in hand.
