One of the things on my bucket list can now be taken off. Unfortunately, the day we were there it was raining and some nasty flies were wreaking havoc. Good interpretive centre.

It was windy and cold but who care since I saw icebergs in the area. We didn't do a guided tour but it was still lovely and informative since the staff at the hut provided info and answered all our questions.

We were fortunate to have Clayton as our guide. He has been involved with the site for years and has some wonderful stories. The views are beautiful and if you're there during iceberg season it is awesome. It is windy and there's a cold breeze...More

I think the tour was about 45 min after we had watched the movie inside and looked around inside. It was a guided tour and I'm not sure how often they go. We felt it was more educational with guide. You could still walk it... More
