These enormous marine mammals are a unique visual delight in Nunavut. Famous for their lumbering and sometimes irritable nature, they are distinct because of their enormous tusks. Walrus spend their time on the sea ice, where they can hunt for their favourite food, bivalve mollusks. In the ocean they are graceful and powerful swimmers, but on the ice or on the land they can appear quite clumsy and disorganized. Only the strongest and best hunters used to be able to catch these powerful animals, but you will be able to capture them with your cameras under the tutelage of our capable Outfitters.
Walrus can be found near the communities of Arviat, Coral Harbour, Hall Beach, Igloolik, Kugaaruk, Grise Fiord, Pond Inlet, Naujaat, Kimmirut and Sanikiluaq.
