This tour is a favourite for many as you get an hour of interacting with our beautiful beluga whales and also see an important part of Canada’s history at the Prince of Wales Fort.
Watch as belugas surround your boat, knowing that the experienced guides and special safety features of the boat ensure that even the most curious belugas will remain unharmed.
Then the tour docks at the Fort which is rich in history and timeless beauty. Step inside to admire the strength of this stone structure that has been standing guard for 250 years at the mouth of the Churchill River. What used to be a bustling hub for fur traders was later reinvented into a stone fortification when peace was threatened between England and France. There was a strong desire to control Hudson Bay’s resources and the Prince of Wales Fort had the most advantageous position for defence. Take a trip back in time through the ruins of the fort that took 40 years to build under the harsh survival conditions of the Arctic.
The boat we use will be determined by group size and weather conditions.
Please arrive 30 minutes before the posted tour time at our office location 153 Kelsey Blvd.
