Holiday Overview

Beluga & Polar Bear Summer Adventure - an amazing Canada wildlife holiday.

There will also be time to delve into the fascinating history of the area.

ADDITIONAL: It is recommended that the following activities are requested at the time of booking.

Guided Kayaking (3 hours)

Paddle amongst beluga whales in the Churchill River with an experienced guide. Beluga whales are curious creatures and on occasion they may trail behind the kayaks! The excursion takes place at low tide and focuses on spending time with the beluga whales in their natural environment. This adventure is safe for beginners and first time kayakers; a short instructional session will be provided prior to going on the water. Included are equipment (single or double kayak, wet suit, life jacket and neoprene boots), experienced guide, and dockside transfers. Some passengers choose to wear bathing suits or thermal clothing under the wet suits. It is best that clothing be close fitting. The excursion is subject to weather conditions.

Beluga AquaGliding™ (3 hours)

Glide above the water for a truly unique excursion creates a non-threatening posture, encouraging some of the thousands of friendly and curious Beluga Whales to approach us in their natural habitat. Recommended for ages 12 and older, all equipment is provided including wet suits, neoprene boots, gloves and lifejackets. Please note: It is best that clothing be close-fitting, thermal clothing, bathing suits or similar under the wetsuits. (Dry suit available upon request).
