Trip to watch Belugas with children in Hudson Bay, Canada
This trip takes us to Churchill, a town at the northern coast of Manitoba in Canada, the Polar Bear capital and the home to the world’s largest population of beluga whales.
As a matter of fact, more than 57,000 beluga whales patrol the arctic and sub-arctic waters around the Hudson Bay each summer.

During our time in Churchill, we can enjoy making some outdoor activities with children like a guided tour around the Hudson Bay or a visit the Fort Prince of Wales, a place of great historic significance.

In addition, we can optionally sail the waters of the Churchill River, where we will observe belugas and have the opportunity to listen while they communicate themselves, thanks to the sonar boat, and even to swim with them equipped with mask, snorkel and fins. Belugas are also known as "Sea Canaries" for their strange high-pitched whistles, clicking, chirping and other underwater vocalizations.
