Belugas are supposedly the only whales that can turn their necks, so you can find yourself being eyed up by whales below as you snorkel along.
July and August heralds the arrival of more than 3000 Beluga whales into Hudson Bay, heading for the mouth of the Hudson River where they summer in the estuary.

These incredible pure white creatures stick around for weeks in order to give birth and feed on the plentiful shoals of fish, moving in and out of Hudson Bay on the tide.
Famously relaxed and curious around humans, the best ways are to see them are by kayak, or even better, snorkelling above them in a drysuit. We can arrange a snorkel safari boat trip, where you don a drysuit (this is the Arctic after all) and are dragged along behind a boat that follows the whales sedate progress around the bay. When the whales surface, you might get the ultimate close up.
