Arctic Ocean Tour

Come out with us by boat on a one-of-a-kind arctic ocean tour, as we explore the shores of our hamlet, and beyond. We’ll keep a look out for orcas, narwals, seals, and more, while you enjoy fishing, and taking in the beauty of the land.

There are plenty of unique sights to explore, like the famous “pants” rock formation and the St. Georges Society Cliffs near Uluksan Peninsula and Oulouksione Point. The Society Cliffs have an elevation of 192 meters, and are a sight to behold. At the end of our daytime excursions, we’ll camp in heated tents by the ocean where you’ll have an opportunity to fish for your own fresh arctic char to roast for dinner. If you can’t catch supper don’t worry, we’ll feed you! Food for the trip is supplied by us as part of the tour package.

You’ll also have a chance to spot an orca whale pod, of about 30, which enjoys the waters around Admiral Inlet as well as other arctic wildlife unique to our remote Canadian arctic.
