Location

Here at the extreme north of Newfoundland lies a strip of ocean that extends all the way south from Baffin Bay and along the northeast coast of Newfoundland; this is what`s known as Iceberg Alley. Every iceberg seen in Newfoundland will have been, undoubtly, spotted here first, (just look at the map).

A little known fact:



As icebergs travel south, they melt, become weaker and break into thousands of pieces. Therefore, by the time they reach such places as Twillingate and St. John`s, they are just a mere fraction of what they once were here in northern Newfoundland.
