Dundas Harbour

Dundas Harbour is a small, uninhabited harbour located in Qikiqtaaluk Region, Nunavut, Canada. It lies on the south-eastern coast of Devon Island, in the Arctic Ocean, approximately 590 kilometres (370 miles) north of the Arctic Circle.

The harbour is a natural harbour, formed by a wide bay that opens to the north. It is surrounded by steep, rocky cliffs, and has a large, flat, sandy beach. The harbour is well-protected from the ocean, and is an important refuge for Arctic wildlife, including polar bears, seals, and walrus.

Dundas Harbour was an important historical site for the Inuit people. It was the site of a Hudson's Bay Company trading post from 1853 to 1855, and was also the site of a British Royal Navy base from 1851 to 1855. During this time, the harbour was used as a base for exploring the Arctic and for mapping the area.

In 1853, the British explorer John Rae built a small house at Dundas Harbour and lived there for a year. During this time, he conducted detailed surveys of the area, and collected valuable information about the Inuit people and their culture.

Today, Dundas Harbour is an important site for scientific research. It is home to a research station operated by the Canadian government, and is a popular destination for Arctic expeditions. The harbour is also a popular tourist destination, and is visited by many cruise ships each year.
