The tiny village of Red Bay, Labrador may have been one of my favorite ports simply because the Mayor of the Town came to the pier to greet all the passengers as they were disembarking the tenders in port. We hear so much about towns not wanting to be overrun with Cruise Ship passengers, but not Red Bay, they get so few ships a year, they were happy to roll out the red carpet for us. It was actually quite a foggy day, and the town is very small, just a camping area and some whale watching tours, so we pretty much just went for a walk around town.
This port was once a Basque whaling port, and their most prized museum piece is the best preserved and oldest Basque whaling boat which they proudly display in their newly remodeled museum. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site because of the history of the Basque Whalers. The fog came in and out several times while we were in port. We were actually a bit concerned about the tenders being able to navigate back to the ship, but it ended up not being a problem other than taking a little longer to get them back on the ship.
