Various shots of the coast showing mountains and flat lands. A whaleboat approaches ship and passengers step up on deck. Various shots of what looks like a deposit of bones. Shots of Inuit dogs, of Inuit passengers comparing babies. Shot of wake of ship, of ice floes, of open sea. Passengers mill about on deck while three men climb to the crow's nest.
