About the Community

Located on Eclipse Sound on northern Baffin Island, beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife bless Pond Inlet. Referred to as the “jewel of the Baffin”, this ancestral homeland of the North Baffin Inuit is rich in archaeology. Thule Inuit lived in the region for centuries and left many interesting sites. American and Scottish whalers frequently visited the area early in the 19th century. Today, the major activities include tourism, ocean mammal harvesting, hunting and fishing, trapping and oil exploration.
