Poseidon Expeditions - your polar cruise operator

Will I have close encounters with whales and other wildlife in a kayak?

One of the objectives of Sea Kayak Club is to encounter unique polar wildlife in its natural habitat. Seeing a whale or other marine mammal from a kayak is an unforgettable experience. However, kayakers do not necessarily get closer to wildlife than do other cruise passengers. The chances of having a close encounter with a whale or seal are about the same whether you are in a kayak or in a Zodiac. Kayakers simply tend to have more intimate and personal experiences. Kayakers are required to follow IAATO / AECO guidelines concerning distances to wildlife. Under no circumstances will we approach a polar bear in the water.
