Witness the impressive wildlife of pristine Baffin Island on a cruise with Adventure Life. Baffin Island is home to polar bears, musk ox, seals and narwhals, fjords and glaciers, and expansive Arctic wilderness. Many of the cruises that visit Baffin Island also visit Greenland or transverse the entire Northwest Passage, just like explorerers such as John Franklin did. Modern-day explorers will delight in the opportunities to kayak or even dive in these frigid waters for the rare chance to see the gargantuan bottoms of the icebergs, coldwater jellyfish, and the polar bears that love to go for relaxing swims here. Or, you can harness your inner Innuit as you drive a traditional sled or explore the tundra by snowmobile. Contact us to start planning a once in-a-lifetime cruise to Baffin Island.
