Ice dive with bel­uga whales

World of Animals - - Explore The Earth -

When the sur­face of the sea freezes over, an in­cred­i­ble new world opens up. Cut through the ice and de­scend be­low to see the dap­pled Sun streak through the frozen water.

These trips are not for the faint of heart; ice div­ing can be danger­ous, and par­tic­i­pants need spe­cial­ist equip­ment and train­ing, but the re­ward might be a face-to-face en­counter with a bel­uga whale. These charis­matic mam­mals are some of the smartest an­i­mals in the sea and have a rep­u­ta­tion for blow­ing bub­ble rings be­neath the waves.
