Beluga season is going strong in Churchill. Check out this amazing beluga whale in the Churchill River by Alex De Vries – Magnifico! Over three thousand beluga whales migrate to the Churchill River estuary in the Arctic summer. Their natural curiosity enables travelers to get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures!
The beluga whales of the Hudson Bay and particularly the Churchill River estuary are extremely curious marine mammals that love to troll along with the zodiacs. Rarely do they try to take a chomp at the fine Italian rubber that forms the boats but this guy had some craving I guess. Beluga season in Churchill always brings new surprises that you never expect to see….looks like this one has more in store for us all!
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!
