See the signatures of northern explorers who left their ships here during the winter.
Sloop Cove was a safe harbour and winter haven for Hudson's Bay Co. (HBC) sloops in the 18th century. Due to post glacial land uplift, it is now a meadow surrounded by rocks with iron mooring rings. The rocks bear signatures of HBC men, the most famous being Samuel Hearne, northern explorer and HBC governor. Tour arrangements can also be made with private boat tour operators. Access by boat or helicopter. Fee for guided tour.
