The Beluga Boat Cam is Live!

The time of year has come for the Churchill River to fill with the songs of beluga whales, and you can watch these incredible creatures live on the beluga boat cam!

You've probably heard of the polar bear cam - a live feed video of Churchill's polar bears that can be watched around the world from the comfort of your own home. 

For the fifth year in a row, we are happy to announce that Churchill's beluga boat cam is live, showing people around the globe the curious and friendly whales that spend their summers in the warm waters of the Churchill River (at least warmer in comparison with the arctic waters in which they spend the rest of their year).  

The beluga boat cam, a joint venture run by explore.orgPolar Bears International and Frontiers North, runs approximately mid-July to early September, capturing the daily goings-on of the Churchill River beluga whales. The above deck cam lets people view pods from afar, see the weather conditions and river, and interact with the Beluga Boat Captain who provides running commentary and answer questions. The below water cam allows viewers to see the belugas get up close and personal, and to hear the beluga whales beautiful chatter all day long.

Watch the beluga boat cam

The beluga boat cam has garnered a large online fan base and now viewers can take snapshot photos of the whales to share with beluga whale researchers as part of a new Citizen Science Program. Captained by an experienced beluga guide, the beluga boat bam captures incredible video and audio footage of the beluga whales and sometimes the cams capture live footage of polar bears on the shore.
