Embark on a marine tour consisting of at least two expeditions by boat to view beluga whales, seals, seabirds, and polar bears aboard a fully equipped Zodiac with a hydrophone so that you can listen to whales beneath the icy waters. Each expedition is a half day in order to coordinate with the high tides. Refreshments and lunch will be served depending on the tides. The chance to see a number of beluga whale pods is a likelihood with the friendly creatures eager to investigate disturbances in the water, including your transportation, allowing possible close encounters of the serene creatures. Dry suits will be provided to offset the chill of the Hudson Bay. #2.
