Three magnificent photos from Andy Murch in Churchill. The Arctic tern is an amazing bird with the longest migratory path of any bird travelling pole to pole throughout the year. Watching terns scavenge capelin from the waters surface in Churchill after being churned up by feeding beluga whale pods is quite an experience. Arctic Terns are truly an opportunistic species!
These are some of the coolest photos we have seen from the Churchill River of the beluga whales. Andy Murch from Bigfish Expeditions took these on a recent visit to Churchill. He has refined his ability to capture these animals in their natural habitat with incredible clarity. Beluga season has been revealing incredible treasures and these “canaries of the sea” are the focus of an incredible northern experience on the Hudson Bay. Enjoy!
What an incredible underwater shot from Andy Murch in Churchill just last week. Beluga season has produced some magnificent and rare images this year and this one ranks right at the top. Experiencing the beluga whales while diving or snorkeling in the Churchill River is one of the most exhilarating activities one can take in while visiting Churchill. Enjoy!
An awesome photograph by Andy Murch of polar bears sparring in the water in Churchill. Guide Alex De Vries – Magnifico lead the group via zodiac to this secret polar bear hangout. After a morning snorkeling with beluga whales in the Churchill River, this was an amazing way to finish off a great day on the water. This summer polar bears have been prolific most of the season with some groups seeing up to 20 bears. This is unusual as some years sightings can be quite scarce. Enjoy!

This beluga whale shot taken by Andy Murch and BigFishExpeditions.com at the bottom of the Churchill River is a unique photo that you don’t see that often. Getting down to the seabed gives an incredible scale and awesome fresh look. Enjoy!
