Hamilton Inlet

Hamilton Inlet

Hamilton Inlet: see Melville, Lake, Canada.

Hamilton Inlet is a fjord-like inlet on the Labrador coast of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Together with Lake Melville, it forms the province's largest estuary, extending over 140 kilometres inland to Happy Valley-Goose Bay and primarily draining the Churchill River and Naskaupi River watersheds. Lake Melville is considered a part of Hamilton Inlet and extends west of the deep, narrow passage at the community of Rigolet. A ferry service runs on Hamilton Inlet, connecting the communities of Happy Valley-Goose Bay with Cartwright and Lewisporte.
