Make eye contact with a beluga whale! The Churchill River estuary is one of the summering grounds for the largest population of beluga whales in the Arctic. Churchill is the only place in the world you can you get as up close and personal with the charming and highly vocal white whales as they migrate to the river estuary to feed, give birth and molt. As a participant in Belugas in the Bay, you have three opportunities to view beluga whales in their natural habitat – an estuary tour; a kayaking tour; and a “Fort and Whale” tour combining whale watching and a guided visit to the Prince of Wales Fort, a National Historic Site on the opposite side of the Churchill River. You will also observe the many birds of the area, go on walking tours of Cape Merry National Historic Site, and explore town and other coastal areas. Evening lectures on marine biology and a local cultural presentation help round out this truly educational experience.
