Check out this image of two bears in the Hudson Bay. Now that’s the authentic polar bear dip. Although not common to capture photo’s of polar bears in the water around Churchill, every once in awhile you can be at the right place at the right time. When the ice starts to melt in the Spring, bears can swim miles to land and a resting area. It is a magnificent feeling to watch a bear slowly move through the water and come ashore. Hard not to get the chills when observing these creatures in 42 degree F water!
