Sea Animals

The waters of the North are teeming with animal life. Nowhere else in the world will you find an ocean filled with the variety and number of mammals that call the Arctic home. Here you will meet the elusive unicorn of the deep, the Narwhal. You will glimpse the awesome majesty of the polar bear. These are once-in-a-lifetime encounters.
Among the most traditionally important marine mammals to the Inuit is the seal. The ringed seal has made an indelible mark on these resourceful people. Besides being a main staple in the diet, the seal has also provided skin for clothing and dog harnesses and blubber for lamps.
Awkward on land but graceful in the water, the whiskered walrus was hunted traditionally for its precious ivory tusks. These giant mammals can be found packed tightly on ice floes in the shallow water that allows them easy access to clams on the sea floor.
A large number of whales frequent the waters here, although there are only three different species that can be truly called Arctic whales. Arctic whales include the ghostly white Beluga, the single-tusked Narwhal and the giant Bowhead Whale, which weighs in at nearly 100 tonnes. Killer Whales (Orcas) are also seen in the area in the summer months, along with Sperm Whales and the world's largest living mammals, Blue Whales. Not surprisingly, one of the most popular activities in the North is whale watching.
