Is there a way to see walrus near Nome?

We're planning a trip to Nome in July and was wondering if there are any charter boats or tour operators out of Nome that can take us to see walrus along the coastline or islands. Most of the wildlife tours I've read about from Nome that include walrus spotting leave out of other places in Alaska.

With the climate and Bering Strait changing, I recommend you get in touch with the air operators in Nome or the Chamber of Commerce and ask them directly. What was true ten or 40 years ago is no longer true today in many areas of our world in Alaska. The fish, the walrus and the polar bear have changed their habits out of necessity, and there is the chance they are hanging around within flying range in July.
