Cape Merry

A lone cannon stands as a memory of the value of the fur trade at the site of this 17th-century fort. Visitors can explore and learn how the region was settled and developed. During the beluga whale migration (July & August) this is a great viewpoint from which to see the white whales in the estuary of the Churchill River.
