Getting to Red Bay is a destination unto itself. The ferry ride from Newfoundland was easy. We saw numerous icebergs. Red Bay is so interesting. It's hard to believe that centuries ago the whaling industry was so active. Would recommend it.
The Chalupa was recreated from the wreckage of a Basque Galleon still buried in the harbour. It was used as a whaling boat by the Basque. It's the only object in the museum at the top of the hill.

Red Bay is a World Heritage Site that's only been recognized for its contemporary significance since the 1980's when archaeologists did some in depth investigation and realized this was the site of a Basque whaling station dating from the 1600's. The movie in the hill top visitor center that tells the story is informative but looks dated. Yet the site... 更多
Very well done Parks Canada site. They really are in two separate buildings in Red Bay, Labrador. Tells the story of the whaling that put them on the map
