What an amazing experience to go out on a zodiac and kayak to see the beautiful belugas! Our guide, Nokia (sorry if spelt incorrectly), took us right to the belugas! I can only describe our encounters as “out of this world”. These creatures want to play with us, and are so intelligent. I feel grateful to have had this experience. As a Manitoban, I would not have been able to afford this trip if it weren’t for this pandemic. Everyone should be able to experience this. Cannot say enough about beautiful Churchill and it’s people!

If you are looking to get up close and personal with the amazing wildlife in Churchill this is the company you want to use! Our family of 7 booked 3 seperate tours including: zodiak with belugas, whales and fort tour, and kayaking with whales. We definitely had a blast, and managed to spot whales, seals, and polar bears during our excursions. Our guide Alex was knowledgeable, freindly and keen to get us the best views possible. The company provides timely shuttles, and is centrally located in it's sister company The Polar Inn (highly reccommend that you stay here!). Safety for humans and animals was very important and this company is the only one in operation in Churchill that uses prop guards to keep the whales safe from propellors. Don't hestitate, these are the guys you want to use!

My partner and I did the beluga zodiak tour and it was honestly one of the coolest things I have every experienced. The belugas would come right up to our boat to say hello and followed us around for a while. We were on the water for about an hour and the whales were right with us for a good 55 minutes of that at least. We definitely got our monies worth. If you're lucky, you may even see polar bears because you get a good view of the bedrock along the coast. They even shuttled us from our hotel to the boat launch!

Our family of 3 did TWO tours with Sea North. Kayaking with Belugas and Sloops Cove Hike. Kayaking was the highlight. I took my action cam and got lots of excellent video of belugas right beside me. My son said belugas were nudging his kayak and then followed him back to the beach when the time was over. Although I didn't have any nudges, belugas would bob up and down watching me like they were waiting for me to throw something so they could fetch it. They were amazing! Sloops Cove was a fascinating tour of history. The hike was along the shoreline of the Churchill River and ended at the Fort. We even saw a caribou along the way. Our guide was an Indigenous woman who grew up in Churchill, so her stories and insights were second to none. The hike itself was a little too far for our 12yr old son, but he made it. Boating across the River to Sloops Cove also afforded us some beluga whale watching time, so really with this tour you get to do some whale watching and do a historic hike along the Churchill River.

What a trip highlight! Sitting on an inflatable boat in the center of the Churchill river, surrounded by hundreds of Beluga whales and watching a Polar Bear with cub on the shoreline. The Sea North Whale Estuary tour lived up to all expectations. Their representative (boat captain) was very knowledgeable about the whales, which just ignored us and swam within pods around the river inlet; and the representatives went out of their way to put us in the best position on the river to see the polar bears. Would highly recommend this company and this tour. The best time to catch both whales and possibly polar bears is in August.
