Featuring animal footage of every imaginable animal in the Arctic, this is a wonderful collection of very special footage of narwhal, polar bears – notably a baby cub that wandered into camp, petting a bowhead whale! swimming with beluga, and walrus all shot by Arctic Kingdom expedition leaders on one of their expeditions over the years.
Diving at the floe edge, amongst cathedrals of ice in the pack ice, along the arctic sea floor, through leads and cracks. Diving in the arctic on an Arctic Kingdom dive trip will reward the diver with some of the most incredible diving possible in a world that can seem surreal. Starfish, sea urchins, jellyfish beds of kelp and seaweed and as one marine biologist said “there are species not even yet named” to be seen. This video is compilation of what to expect on a dive trip in June to the high Arctic.
Narwhal, Polar Bear, Diving and Inuit Culture Highlights
From seeing hundreds of narwhal at the ice floe edge, polar bears searching for seal amongst the pack ice, journeying past soaring cliffs and mountains thousands of feet tall on a snowmobile – this video shows what to typically expect on Arctic Kingdom’s one week trip to a floe edge.
Ever wonder how Disney Nature captures underwater images of narwhal or beluga? In the Disney Nature ‘Oceans’ – we were there behind the scenes.
This video gives a behind the scenes look at Arctic Kingdom’s capabilities to assist film makers – from single person documentaries to large scale projects with filming or remote support services in the arctic – from location scouting, to logistics and outfitting and providing specialized equipment such as helicopters, zodiacs that fold and can be put onto planes for remote deployment, airboats, diving support and camp support services. We work closely with Inuit communities to provide the best Arctic Film Support in the world.

Snorkeling with Narwhal and Beluga
Swimming with Narwhal and Beluga with snorkel or scuba gear on an Arctic Kingdom arctic trip to Baffin Island, Canada. This video highlights the arctic traveler who comes on a 1 week trip to the arctic to see the narwhal or beluga spring migration to the floe edge. See narwhal tusks high in the air, whales only feet from snorkelers. Footage shows swimming with whales topside and underwater
Discovery Channel covers Arctic Kingdom’s Airboat ice diving antics in the St. Lawrence
Discovery Channels Daily Planet show aired on March 12, 2009 – showcasing Arctic Kingdom’s ice diving on shipwrecks from an airboat in the St. Lawrence River, 1000 Islands region. The region is a shipwreck scuba divers mecca, but because of open water and ice, traditional boats and snowmobiles cannot access the shipwrecks and see them with 100′ visibility. Arctic Kingdom’s airboat can move over ice and water providing a safe vehicle to access hundreds of shipwrecks and dive on them when water visibility is at it’s best.
This was one of our early expeditions to the floe edge. A bowhead whale surfaces meters from us at the floe edge and hangs out for almost an hour. One of the trip participants couldn’t resist to get really close…watch the outcome! Amazing.
Polar Bear, Beluga and Narwhal swim together
While having lunch on the floe edge watching beluga’s and narwhal, a polar bear wanders up the floe edge, climbs in the water in front of us, and swims in the same waters as the beluga and narwhal. Short video, but the memories last a lifetime!
