Beluga is a white whale, wingless dolphins, sea canary or ...; this mysterious animal is named differently by different people. Of course, a Beluga is a white whale! The largest Beluga males reach up to 6 meters in length and 2 tons of weight. The head of the Beluga is quite small, "fore headed", without a beak. Or maybe a Beluga is a dolphin: the dorsal fin is absent; hence the Latin name of the genus Delphinapterus: “wingless dolphin". Or is it a sea canary because of their whistling, clicking, chirping? One thing is sure: Belugas are very social creatures. Belugas can love and talk. So in short, it is a BELUGA: they are kind, funny, playful, talkative, affectionate and loves guests!
The Belugas live in large cages close to the Nilma Bay in the White Sea. Each Beluga is named, which (s)he responds eagerly to. Each Beluga has its own character: pensive or smart, kind, or weasel like. The instructor will introduce you to everyone, tell about their lifestyle and habits, teach how to deal with these amazing animals. After the briefing, you will change into a drysuit: the water in the White Sea is usually very cold. Now you are ready to communicate with beluga whales in their natural environment. Belugas are happy to get in touch: they sail with you racing, invite you to play, move up their heads to be stroked or even kissed. You can feed the Belugas and make pictures of them in the water. Communication with Belugas in the water cause the most positive impressions. Swimming, snorkeling of diving with them, you may feel like a Beluga...
