Bellot Strait

  • Bellot Strait

We sailed through the heart of the Northwest Passage – the Bellot Strait (Ikirasak). This strait separates the northernmost part of mainland North America from Somerset Island in the Arctic Ocean. It takes skill to navigate through this strait – it is only accessible at high tide, has patches of dangerous ice, and is only about a kilometre wide. We are thrilled to report we made it through safely!
