About Whale Cove
Alternate Name: Tikirarjuaq
Local Meaning: Where Many People Arrive
TIME ZONE: Central
A very traditional Inuit community, Whale Cove is located
on the sheltered west coast of Hudson Bay, south of
Rankin Inlet in Nunavut Territory. A ridge of rock surrounds
the community, and the permafrost extends to one metre.
The people of Whale Cove still rely heavily on hunting
and fishing both for food, and for artisan materials.
With no road access to Whale Cove, the region relies
on air transport. Whale Cove has much to offer, from
fishing and hunting expeditions, arctic camping and
wildlife watching, land and water tours, to easy-going
dog sled rides and whale watching.
