Polar Bears & Beluga WhalesGuest Feedback

What Guests Are Saying...

The program exceeded my expectations. Sighting polar bears, so many beluga whales, the presentation on photography and birds, the research station tour, and talking to townspeople. All staff—guides, front desk, servers, park and museum docents—were friendly, very knowledgeable, helpful and fun.

This was our first organized tour. It was excellent. The friendly guide was very knowledgeable and anticipated the little things that helped guests enjoy the activities even more. Very well organized from beginning registration to the farewell. Top quality. Lazy Bear Lodge and the guides were outstanding.

I try not to set up expectations, so I was delighted to be so close to the belugas, polar bears and caribou. The dog mushing was a special treat. The program was very well organized. Great attention to detail with many special touches. Lazy Bear Lodge was delightful and having the owner take us out on the boat felt special.

This is our seventh Orbridge experience—we keep coming back for more due to the outstanding programs and guides. This program was better than expected! Highlights included the Hudson Bay tour, and the Assiniboine Park Zoo experience was excellent.

–Bob & Kim B., Deerfield, IL

We had high expectations to begin with, so we consider having met our expectations a high mark. Our overall impressions of this program are very positive. The leaders were patient, positive, helpful, well-informed, and organized. We'd be happy to take another trip with them! The dog mushing and kayaking were highlights.

We loved Lazy Bear Lodge—very rustic, and the food was excellent.

Our Expedition Leader went over and above to make sure we always knew what was going on and when. She was very knowledgeable about Churchill and the wildlife.

The Zodiac ride was outstanding! We saw a bear and the whales were awesome—came so close to the boat I actually was able to touch one. Amazing experience. The zoo experience, particularly the food, was also outstanding.

Our Expedition Leader was very nice, very knowledgeable and always available to us.

This was our second experience with Orbridge and we were not disappointed. They are the best travel group we've encountered. Our guide was an excellent, knowledgeable leader. We could not have had better!
