Available only in June because of the presence of ice. Tours begin as soon as the ice breaks up, June 1 to June 30.

For the Floe Ice Tour we invite you to book a date, but the time of the tour only can be determined one day ahead of time. Tide and the current ice conditions dictate tour times; please visit or call us when you’re in Churchill to confirm the time of your tour. 

Join us for our season’s start up expeditions with birds, seals, possible first belugas of the season and, of course, ice! Beginning after June breakup and leading through to the end of June, this tour is perfect for the avid photographer, birder and any traveller looking to experience the Arctic’s awakening from winter. Churchill River breakup varies but usually occurs early to mid-June. This is a beautiful opportunity to see turquoise core sea ice in world-famous, military-grade Zodiacs.

What to Expect

Past tours have seen close up sightings of three species of Jaegers (Skuas), Harlequin Ducks, King eiders, Black Guillemots, all sorts of Gulls including Great Black-Backed, Sabine’s, Little and Ross’s, as well as many more common birds in the area. A birder’s paradise to be sure!

However, this tour is more than birds, it’s a unique experience where you can interact with the Arctic’s beautiful transformation into the much awaited summer. You get the opportunity to become part of an intimate environment, which is a lively soup of birds, seals, huge turquoise core ice shapes and possibly the season’s first belugas. The ice breakup creates a tantalizing image spread as far as the eye can see across the Hudson Bay making for unique and haunting photographs.

It is necessary for you to dress warmly!
