Paradise Harbour is surrounded by heavily glaciated mountains and ice cliffs, which protect and shield this part of the bay and reflect in the ice-cold waters. With a mind-boggling array of ice-bergs, these are a highlight, enhancing the wildlife viewing experience which includes whales and abundant birdlife.

Icebergs ‘calve’ off the head of the harbour, producing fascinating shapes and different shades of blue.

Seals may be seen reclining on convenient ice floes, and there are large populations of terns, petrels, cormorants and penguins. It may not always be possible to land around the harbour, but the beauty and serenity of the area will leave you in no doubt that Paradise Harbour is aptly named.
