Cristina and I went on ‘snorkel with belugas’ tour from Sea North Tours in Churchill, Manitoba and it was one of the most amazing wildlife encounters of our lives.

We were in the water for an hour, surrounded by beluga whales the entire time. We were being towed backwards behind a slow-moving zodiac so the belugas could follow us face to face. The highlight was seeing several mothers with small baby belugas! They brought the babies right up to us so we could each have a closer look at each other.

The experience was so moving that when Cristina got out of the water she actually cried.

Our tour was provided by Travel Manitoba.

Many thanks to our excellent guides Claude and Rhonda.
