Ocean Ports of Call

Herschel Island - Canada, Yukon Highlights:
Pauline Cove whaling station, Franklin Bay, Yukon National Park
Herschel Island, on the north coast of the Yukon in the Beaufort Sea is where Roald Amundsen completed his voyage and became the first man to sail through the Northwest Passage and around the northern Canadian coast in 1905. It stands in the path of the famous Beaufort Gyre. At Franklin Bay, gaze into the same luminous polar sky as Amundsen, who wintered at nearby King's Point. This was also the site of a busy 19th century whaling station and was the Yukon's first territorial park. At Pauline Cove you can take a guided walk among the historic remains of the station. No fewer than fifteen ships overwintered here in 1894-95 and the now-abandoned town may once have housed as many as 2,000 residents. From here you can also visit the Yukon National Park.
