Swim with Beluga Whales
Before you get in, however, you need to wear the proper gear. The water temperature is a very chilly 45 degrees, so wearing a protective neoprene wetsuit is a must. Other than that just don a snorkel, mask, and fins, and slip over the side of the kodiak and into the fun.
Only a small group of outfitters offer the opportunity to go snorkeling with Beluga whales. Churchill Wild offers an adventure that allows to see the wildlife from the land, by plane, and from below the waters, and Sea North Tours provides the chance to swim with the Belugas on excursions departing from Churchill, Manitoba.
After receiving the notice to climb back into the raft, you may be saddened that you can't spend more time with the whales. But as you depart, you wont be able to stop grinning as you realize that you have experienced something that is truly unique, and will be left with memories that you will cherish forever.
