Not all icebergs are as big as houses. "Bergy bits" are pieces of ice that float no more than 5 meters (16.5 feet) above the ocean. Growlers reach only one meter (3.3 feet). This boat navigates brash ice, a collection of different kinds of icebergs, in front of a large iceberg or tidewater glacier off the coast of Greenland.
