From the town of St Anthony looking out over the harbour, pack ice floats randomly throughout the water creating a fascinating scene. Pack ice can start to enter the harbour of St. Anthony anywhere in the winter months and may hang around until the middle of June as it warms up and the ice begins to disappear.At times in the harbour of St Anthony, Newfoundland pack ice can block the area so it makes it impossible for fishing boats to leave until the ice begins to melt. Once it is safe for the boats to head out to sea, they must be aware of any large chunks of ice below the surface that have still not melted.Depending on the weather and the Arctic wind, pack ice can squeeze together and strand vessels in the open waters from going anywhere. Many stories exist where boats and people have been stranded and they have been air lifted out of the water as the ice damaged the hulls of the boats. This does not happen on a yearly basis but massive chunks of ice are seen every year. ... continue below the picture...
