Churchill webcam and beluga whale video

Here’s an amazing live look at Churchill, Manitoba from the lens of the rotating webcam mounted above the town. Spectacular views of the Churchill River, town center and the Hudson Bay give a year -round view of the frontier sub-arctic town.

With beluga whale season rapidly approaching, take a look at this cool video posted a year ago. A comprehensive look at what one can do out on the Churchill River and Hudson Bay. Not quite 50,000 whales come to the Churchill estuary but there are still plenty to go around in this little known wildlife experience.

Hudson Bay Quest underway

The annual Hudson Bay Quest between Churchill and Gillam started today and is expected to run over the the next two to three days. This year the Quest left from Churchill and the mushers and dog-teams will travel across the tundra to Gillam.

Check out the footage from the webcam with a birds-eye view of the race start in Churchill.
