Iceberg Paddle


This spectacular iceberg was the goal of our paddle on Saturday (photo credit: Dave MacDonald). Fifteen KNL members launched from Turks Gut, just south of Brigus in Conception Bay.

Paddling north we found the archway above, which Paul Benson is paddling through with a big grin.

Here's the pinnacle iceberg with my partner Isabelle.

From the iceberg, we paddled north into Brigus Bay, where we stopped for lunch. Then we headed north towards Cupids. Coming around around the headland we passed through The Arch above.
Where else but Newfoundland could you have such a great paddle, just an hour's drive from St. John's.

Impressive berg! I tried to do that same paddle a few times last year, and it was always too windy. Looks like you guys had a great day for it.

I really recommend that stretch of coastline. Two nice archways, lots of rockhoppping and beautiful variety of shoreline.
