BAFFIN ISLAND DESTINATION GUIDE | 11 Zodiacs are the workhorses of polar expeditions. Zodiacs transport us to remote islands, into shallow inlets, beneath steep bird cliffs and to fascinating areas otherwise inaccessible even to small cruise ships. Off the southern coast of Baffin Island, Monumental Island is one such placeā€”a small, isolated island completely uninhabited, except for groups of impressive arctic animals who are occasionally sighted on the rugged terrain. With your experienced expedition staff, you'll get up close, exploring the rocky shoreline in a Zodiac, scouting for walrus, plus polar bears prowling for food. Dress to get wet and be sure to bring your camera! Be prepared for anything to happen while you're out enjoying this iconic expedition activity. You just never know when a marine animal might decide to show off nearby. Cruise Frobisher Bay by Zodiac ZODIAC CRUISING & SHORE LANDINGS
