Red Bay, Newfoundland / Canada
Red Bay is a bay with a major port in Newfoundland and is today a national park. In the middle of the bay lies the Saddle Island. It was here that a lively industry began to develop in the 16th century, which was mainly engaged in the trade of whale oil and was very much influenced by the Basques living here. Whales can still be seen here today, along with numerous other animal species.
Finnwales and humpback whales are the most common here. There are also some bird species, dolphins, crab and mussel species. Also the flora is impressive.
The archaeological site is especially at the Red Bay. Here you can see a fishing boat from the 16th century and learn everything about the long whaling history of the area.
