Red Bay (Labrador, Canada) cruise port

Between 1530 and the early-17th-century, Red Bay was an important Basque whaling area with several stations. After discovering the wreckages of 3 galleons and 4 chalupas (small boats) used for whaling, Red Bay became one of Americas' most valuable underwater archaeological sites. Since June 2013, the town is designated UNESCO Site.

Red Bay has a sheltered natural harbour in the bay - named after the region's red granite cliffs. Red Bay was used during WW2 (1939-1945) as mooring for naval ships. In the bay are located Saddle Island and Penney Island - used by the Basques for whaling. The location of the sunken ship San Juan (1565) is near Saddle Island, close to the wreck of Bernier (grounded in 1966). A cemetery on Saddle Island has the remains of 140 whalers. An interpretive center in the village explains the town's whailing history to tourists.

Local legends make reference to hidden treasure in of Red Bay buried in a body of water popular as Pond on the Hill at the foot of Tracey Hill by infamous pirate Capt. William Kidd. An attempt to find the treasure was made by Carrol Cove residents by draining the pond but the attempt failed.

Red Bay village has been designated National Historic Site of Canada. Since 2013 it is among the 17 Canadian UNESCO sites.
