Ocean HarbourIn the afternoon of February 3rd, we landed inside beautiful Ocean Harbour, named for the whaling ship OCEAN that operated here in 1909. It was the site of a shore based whaling operation and we could see relcis from that time period,Bayard including a magnificent three-masted bark called the BAYARD which was blown off its mooring and grounded here in 1911.




HikersWe hiked up into the hills, over boggy moss and tussock grass, to a waterfall.Elephant Seals There were huge groups of elephant seals laying in heaps in the muddy wallows. They looked up with curiosity as we passed by.



Waterfall Once at the waterfall, we crossed the stream and hiked along side it to the remains of the old whaling station. Here there were more elephant seals and lots of fur seals spread out in the grassy plain around the ruin and along the shoreline.Elephant Seals
