Cruises from Akpatok Island
Akpatok Island is one of the uninhabited Canadian Arctic Islands in Ugava Bay on the northern coast of Quebec. The island is named for the Akpat, the thick-billed Murre, which live on ledges along the limestone cliffs - some more than 250m in height - surrounding the island. In addition to the Thick-billed Murre, other notable bird species include the Black Guillemot and Peregrine Falcon. Polar bears, seals, and walruses also frequent the area. Read more
At the southern end of the island there are remnants of a Dorset settlement, and there remain a few dilapidated shelters and rusted equipment of an exploratory oil well drilled in July 1971.
