The Walrus of Monumental Island

The rocky, isolated frozen mass of Monumental Island, just off the coast of Baffin Island is known as a remarkable habitat for walrus. Explore the shoreline by Zodiac and you’ll get close to these great, shy mammals and watch them hauled out, basking, waddling and frolicking in a hoarse chorus of calls and lumbering, whiskery flesh. With long tusks and immense bulk, the walrus are as nature documentary suggests, but to see them in their wild, expansive home environment will surpass the expectation of even the most vivid couch-bound imagination.
