Coburg Island (Nirjutiqavvik) is an uninhabited island lying in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago at the top end of Baffin Bay which separates Canada and Greenland. It is in the province of Nunavut, the largest and least populous of Canada’s territories. At 76 deg. latitude few visiting vessels approach closer to the North Pole (1590 km distant). The island is irregular in shape (37km long, 11km at narrowest) and characterised by cliffs to 450m, rocky shores, and tundra. The island is 65% covered with ice cap and glaciers, with highest point 800m, and half a dozen glaciers reach the open sea. Some low landings areas are on the N and NW shores.

Along with the surrounding seas, the island is a part of the Nirjutiqavvik National Wildlife Area (est. 1995), and covered by a number of bird protection programs. It supports a nesting colony of approximately 385,000 seabirds. Cambridge Point, off the southern Marina Peninsula, is notable for Black Guillemots, Black-legged Kittiwakes, Glaucous Gulls, Northern Fulmars, Atlantic Puffins and Thick-billed Murres. In 2006 it was estimated that 160,000 pairs of Thick-billed Murres bred on the island. Surrounded by ice and located off the east coast of Coburg Island is a year-round open water area (polynya) that provide seabirds with rich supplies of fish and crustaceans. From your ship you may spy polar bears climbing high on the cliffs chasing fresh meals.

The marine waters within and around the NWA also provide important feeding ground for a variety of marine mammals including Polar Bears, Walrus, Beluga, Narwhal, and Ringed, Bearded and Harp Seals. Bowhead whale, narwhal, polar bear, seal, walrus, and white whale frequent the area. Northern Fulmars, Glaucous Gulls, Black Guillemots and Atlantic Puffins also nest on steep and rocky Princess Charlotte Monument Island, a small island a few kilometres off the SE of Coburg Island.
