What to Expect

Starts July 10 Due To Water Clarity & Possible Ice Conditions.

Once your experienced guide has located a pod of beluga whales in the mood for some people watching, you will slip over the side into the water. While holding onto a rope you will drift or be gently towed by the zodiac. Your new curious friends will follow along and may come within a few feet to look you over. Snorkelers enter the beluga’s world where vocalizations are easy to hear and echolocation clicks and exhalation bubbles can be felt.

They’ll even bring their young by to check you out, too. These magical moments in the water will never be forgotten as you have an unspoken conversation with the whales. The Arctic wet suits we provide will insulate you from the cold water for over an hour. Time spent with these gentle creatures passes quickly but the thrill lasts a lifetime.

Sea North Tours provides 7MM Bare Arctic wet suits, doubled over the torso, gloves, hoods and boots as well as masks and snorkels. You might feel like a seal all suited up, but you’ll be like family in the water and stay nice and warm in the meantime. The white glow of the belugas in the water looks ethereal and you’ll be wondering why you haven’t done this sooner. So book your trip today, you won’t regret it!

Wet suit compared to Dry suit for snorkeling

Before buying our equipment we consulted with Guy MacMillan, professional diver, Winnipeg Fire Department Search and Rescue, retired. It was explained to us that real dry suits are custom fitted to each individual. It is necessary to have an exact fit at the face and wrists. Too tight and it is difficult to get on with the possibility of ripping, too loose and of course the water will leak into your suit.

We provide arctic wet suits of the proper thickness with johns and jackets cover your body with a minimum of 7 MM of high quality insulating neoprene and double that, 14 MM, over the torso. In addition boots, gloves, hood, mask and snorkel cover you. These suits allow for better mobility in the water and are “warm”. We have had snorkelers in the water for up to 3 hours without any discomfort. Often non-scuba dry suits that are used for snorkeling are primarily designed for wind surfing or jet skiing. These suits trap more air and restrict mobility.
