On the vertical cliffs overlooking the train look for Dahl Sheep feeding. On the other side of the train, Turnagain Arm has some of the largest fluctuation of tides in the world, often causing a Bore tide, a wall of incoming tidal current. When the water is calm beluga whales can often be seen as well as numerous Eagles either soaring or standing in the shallow water near the shore.
