Photo: Whale Bones Beach Trail Red Bay Southern Labrador

Whales bones are scattered over the beach along the Boney Shore Trail near the town of Red Bay in Southern Labrador, Canada.

There are many hiking and walking trails that one can explore along the Labrador Coastal Drive in Southern Labrador but the Boney Shore Trail is particularly interesting. Along the beach, in the harbour across the water from the small town of Red Bay, you will find many pieces of whale bones.These bones are from whale carcasses that were tossed away back in the sixteenth century from the Basque whalers of France and Spain that were hunting for Bowhead and Right Whales. Over the years, the bones were washed ashore and have remained on the beach near Red Bay ever since.To get to the Boney Shore Trail to see the whale bones, you must start at the end of the road to Tracey in Southern Labrador until you make it to the Boney Shore. The trail to Boney Shore is about an one hour round trip and that is not including the time that you spend examining all the whale bones while trying to figure out which part of the whale they are from. ... continue below the picture...
