Beluga Whale boat cam logo

Every year after the ice breaks up on Hudson Bay, thousands of beluga whales migrate to the warmer waters of the Churchill River. We affixed two live ocean cameras to a boat so now you can watch the belugas feed, swim, and nurse their calves a few hours Monday - Friday. Times depend on weather and tides.

The live Beluga Whale cams are made possible with the help of Polar Bears International, Frontiers North Adventures, Parks Canada, Sea North Tours, and the dedication of your trusty captain Hayley.
