Somerset Island is a big, uninhabited island located in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. It is separated by the 2-kilometer wide Bellot Strait from Boothia Peninsula in Qikiqtaaluk Region (Nunavut, Canada), lying between Prince Regent Inlet (across which is Baffin Island) and Peel Sound (across which is Prince of Wales Island). Somerset Island has an area of 9,570 sq.miles (24,800 sq.km), making it the 46th biggest in the world and Canada's 12th largest island.
The tourism establishment Arctic Watch Lodge, located on Somerset Island, was built in 1992. Arctic Watch was founded at Cunningham Inlet due to the large number of beluga whales congregating there in the summer months. The establishment is operated by Josee Auclair and Richard Weber.
