Every summer, hundreds of beluga whales gather in the shallow waters of Cunningham Inlet off Nunavut's Somerset Island to breed, socialize and feast on the abundant marine life.

The opportunity to see these majestic creatures up close attracts dozens of visitors to the Weber family's Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge on Somerset every year, but for those who can't make it to the Arctic, there's this stunning film by Nansen Weber.
