Sight Seeing

10,000 year old Icebergs calved from Greenland glaciers make the ocean wide journey to land on our shores in spring and early summer. Iceberg viewing was phenomenal this year due to the arrival of the Petermans Ice Island that kept the bays choked with mammoth bergs into the fall season.

Whales follow bait fish into the bays and are especially common when capelin roll on the beaches in late spring. Our most common whales are Humpbacks, Minkes, Belugas and Fins. In autumn large numbers of Atlantic White-sided dolphins can be seen leaping from the water.

There are several boat tours available to provide you with a memorable day on the water including Green Bay Ventures based at Burnt Berry Motel.
