Coral Harbour

Coral Harbour, home to approximately 822, is located on Southampton Island, in Hudson Bay.

Walrus, beluga whales and seals can be found in the offshore waters. The area contains some of the best walrus and polar bear watching in Nunavut, and many species of migratory birds. Fine carvings of walrus ivory, soap stone and a rare pure white limestone, unique to the area, are created locally. http://www.nunavutparks.com/english/park-planning/coral-horbour.html
