You need to arrive in Ottawa today, so that you can join the flight tomorrow from Ottawa to Iqaluit and then onward to Pond Inlet. The flight and plane change in Iqualuit consume much of the day tomorrow. We suggest that if you want a distinctive arctic souvenir, you do some window shopping for soapstone carvings today in Ottawa. Then when you are in Pond Inlet you will have an excellent idea of quality and price. Almost always the quality and price are superior in Pond Inlet.
1, Sunday: Our Arctic narwhal adventure begins when we meet in Pond Inlet, Baffin Island, Canada. From Ottawa we’ll probably all fly together to Iqaluit and on to Pond Inlet. Although the price of the air tickets from Ottawa to Pond Inlet is not included in the tour price. We’ll meet up with our local guides and spend our first night in a local hotel, probably the Sauniq Inn.
Today we meet our outfitter and review
what you have packed. Then we have time to explore the small town
of Pond Inlet.
Day 3 Tuesday:
we travel via motor boat to our base camp location at Koluctoo
Bay. On the way we’ll begin the Narwhal and
Bowhead whale search while enjoying the passing arctic scenery.
The odds are excellent we will sight several icebergs along the
way. We will set up camp and then probably have time to
explore the area around our camp.
