View narwhal and other arctic wildlife on this kayaking expedition on Baffin Island


Search for Narwhal and other arctic wildlife on this kayaking adventure in Pond Inlet on Baffin Island.  Pond Inlet is a beautiful Inuit hamlet on the north coast of Baffin Island. This area is ruggedly beautiful and has good populations of narwhal, seal and birdlife. In mid August the ice of Eclipse Sound breaks up for its brief summer season. At this time you will spend two weeks exploring the coasts of Eclipse Sound, Milne Inlet and Navy Board Inlet, watching for the ever-elusive narwhal.

This Pond Inlet trip starts with a 5 hour boat trip to Koluctoo Bay where narwhal often congregate to feed. Weather and ice conditions permitting, you will explore the various interesting locations. From Koluctoo Bay, you head north. As you paddle by fantastic headlands, secluded coves and barren shorelines, you are constantly watching and listening for the telltale 'blow' of the narwhal's breathing.

You will come across stark reminders of the harsh past of the area: abandonned Inuit camps, rocky graves, stone and sod house remains. You'll marvel at the challenges of their everyday life and be glad of your 'modern' gear.  In arctic conditions, expect to be windbound for a couple of days. You will spend these off days exploring on foot. This trip is designed for keen sea kayakers with a taste for the unexpected in the high arctic.

The waters of White Bay, Tay Sound and into Milne and Navy Board Inlets offer relatively protected paddling with fascinating features. This area is well known for the number of narwhal and seals, as well as arctic char fishing! The exact route and timing during the trip is flexible to allow for exploration, animal sightings and the variances of wind, tides and ice conditions.
