Bears, Bugs, and Bergs: Kayak Expeditions in Ungava Bay and Labrador

November 2, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

Join JF Marleau for stories, photos and videos from two kayaking expeditions to the remote and wildly beautiful Canadian Arctic on November 2, 2023 at 7pm on Zoom. Earlier this year he kayaked 1000km around Ungava Bay, home to the largest tidal range in the world, and along the uninhabited towering mountains of Torngat National Park. The extreme tides, and weather coupled with one of the highest densities of polar bears in the world made it a truly epic adventure. The team of 4 had to weave around, and sometimes pull their kayaks over the retreating ice pack, fight into merciless corner and katabatic winds and navigate through thick fog. They saw only 5 people, 10 polar bears, 14 black bears and a lot of marine mammals during their 28 day expedition.
