Inuit driver looking for passage through dense bergy bits, Ammassalik Fjord, East Greenland

The Inuit boatman searching for a way through the dense ice. These guys pushed the fibreglass fishing boats into the dense growlers and bergs until we were nearly stuck. We were trying to make landfall with our pulks and gear to haul it back to Kulusuk and fly home! Our first attempt here failed and we had to boat round into another fjord entirely and drag the pulks out over a short ice cliff.. it was only the beginning of a long day!
