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!
These two underwater photos of male beluga whales in the Churchill River are pretty spectacular. Ellen Cuylaerts snapped these two along with some video at the end of a rather uneventful whale snorkel. These photos more than make up for an otherwise image-less excursion. There’s always something new when it comes to Churchill!
