I took a bear viewing ride with Hudson Bay Helicopters on July 26, 2017. The view along the way to Cape Churchill in Wapusk National Park was stunning. But the bear viewing was highly disturbing to me and especially to the bears. All together we...More

Loved the trip! The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because I would have liked him to hover for ten seconds or so to frame photos. We saw about 12 bears. One with two cubs and one with three.

Several tours per day. $550 CAD/ person but needs minimum of 2-3 passengers to fly. Weather dependent so flights may be mover earlier or later or even cancelled.
