Belcher Island Kayak Tour

Explore unihabited islands as you kayak around some of the 1500 islands that are part of the Belcher Islands archipelago. Kayaks are an essential mode of transportation between the islands. This area is known for its characteristic two-person kayaks that they used to navigate adeptly around the islands and the bay.

Your kayak journey through the Islands may include glimpses of:

  • Ringed Seal
  • Bearded Seal
  • Harbour Seal
  • Beluga Whales
  • Walrus

Keep your eyes peeled for Reindeer. Belcher Islands now supports a Reindeer herd. Reindeer were re-introduced to Belcher Island in 1978 about 100 years after the original caribou disappeared in this area.

You can try your hand at fishing from your kayak for:

  • Arctic Char
  • Cod
  • Capelin
  • Lump Fish
  • Sculpin

For an interesting seafood lunch after a hard morning of kayaking, head to Katapik. This is Sanikiluaq's favorite destination for gathering:

  • mussels
  • sea urchins
  • sea cucumbers
