Watching Beluga Whales (1/17)

Considered one of the best wildlife encounters, Sea North Tours have been delighting people with their whale watching tours of Hudson Bay. Visitors put on an artic wetsuit to slip into the chilly waters to snorkel with Beluga whales.

Each summer, 3,000 to 5,000 of these blubbery white mammals congregate at the mouth of the Churchill River in Manitoba where they nosh on schools of tiny capelin and calve their young. For over 20 years, Mike Macri—the owner and operator of Sea North Tours —has been taking clients out in his boat to see the beluga whales in comfort, but more and more are choosing to snorkel with the graceful creatures. Enjoy these photos from a Sea North tour.
