Northumberland Submarine is the Big Harbour's sole resident submarine. During the show's original run, the Royal Canadian Navy in fact had no active submarines in its fleet. Northumberland is not based on the subsequent RCN Victoria-class submarines, given that his dive planes are installed into his conning tower. He bears more a resemblance to the Royal Dutch Navy's Walrus-class submarines, which were new at the beginning of the series. See more »

Thanks for visiting us here in the Big Harbour, and we'll see you all again next time.

This was a good show for young children. I appreciated the lack of violence and/or bad attitudes that might be found on shows like Thomas the Tank Engine. The characters presented situations that children WILL encounter and taught such feelings and values as being considerate/respectful of others' feelings, empathy when something bad or sad happens, and learning to enjoy the world and people around you for who and what they are (diversity). The show is probably good for children up to 8 or 9 years old and then would probably loose interest after that. I strongly recommend this show for young children and would love to buy full DVD sets of all of the episodes. CBC did a great job with this series.
