New beluga experience comes to Churchill

Local tour operator Lazy Bear Expeditions has introduced a new boat tour which enables passengers to view Churchill’s beluga whales underwater.

The underwater beluga whale watching experience offers passengers close-up encounters with the friendly creatures via viewing windows below deck.

The 23-metre catamaran cruise vessel is the only one in northern Canada to offer this wildlife viewing opportunity.

The vessel carries up to 65 people and features comfortable seats, large windows, a spacious viewing deck, a fully serviced galley complete with espresso machine, as well as two large wheelchair-accessible washrooms.

It has the unique ability to deploy rigid inflatable boats (Zodiacs) for both exploration and viewing expeditions into remote areas of Hudson Bay.

Underwater lighting also allows for evening cruises where guests have the chance to experience the Northern Lights.

Guests of Lazy Bear Expeditions retire to the rustic Lazy Bear Lodge, centrally located in Churchill for overnight stays. The family-run log cabin-style lodge has 33 comfortable rooms and is home to the Lazy Bear Café.

The Churchill tour operator specialises in subarctic wildlife tours, including – but not limited to – beluga whales, polar bears, bearded seals and more.
