Amazing Encounter with Beluga Whales! – 12/8/15

We were so so lucky to spend an evening kayaking on the Churchill river during beluga calving season this past summer. THERE WERE SO MANY BELUGAS!!! You only had to kayak about 5 minutes from shore before a curious pod of young belugas would approach. Feeling slightly guilty for being so close to the whales, my wife and I attempted to retreat and watch from a distance. This only prompted several belugas to chase us! They played with us, bumping our boats and pushing our kayaks along by trailing our wake. It was incredible. These amazing playful, curious animals were a joy!
