Icebergs slowly starting to melt away but this one still clings together by a small bridge with a tunnel that is formed below as it has not thawed enough to break apart. This tunnel may look fairly safe but people aboard this boat tour should never venture too close as the iceberg could break apart at any given time and crash into the waters of Iceberg Alley in Newfoundland, Canada.
Another large piece of the iceberg barely stays together as this piece has melted near the base. Eventually this iceberg will also break away and then there will be three separate pieces to this iceberg which will thaw much faster and finally disappear completely.
From the shores of the town of Great Brehat in Newfoundland, Canada you can stand at a lookout called Flat Point and watch this massive iceberg continually change shape. Here you can also view the boat with Northland Discovery Boat Tours as it makes it way around the iceberg so that passengers aboard can get a good view of the unique tunnel that has been formed.
Once the tunnel disintegrates and the rest of the iceberg melts, boats must always be alert for pieces of the iceberg that may remain below the surface of the ocean. It has taken this iceberg a long time to reach this point of its journey and its lifespan is nearing its end.
Boat tours leave from St. Anthony in Newfoundland, Canada daily when Iceberg Alley is full of these massive natural creations. The sight of an iceberg crashing into the ocean is spectacular and no one knows how long it will take the tunnel on this iceberg to finally disappear. You will also have to keep your eyes open for whales, dolphins and a variety of seabirds on your two and a half hour tour of Newfoundland's wilderness as they love to hang around the icebergs.
