See the elusive and mythical narwhal: the unicorn of the sea! Experience the classic spring floe edge to view Arctic wildlife and icebergs under the midnight sun. Travel to the northern reaches of Baffin Island where the sea ice opens up, and marine mammals and other wildlife congregate at the floe edge. 

Dramatic landscapes and a fascinating, thriving eco-system welcome you for your chance to view pods of narwhal, sea birds, polar bears, seals, and possibly bowhead whales.
