The year 2018 marks our 30th anniversay...
Since turning a love for the community and wildlife of Churchill, Manitoba, for photography, adventure, and the challenge of improving each new Polar Rover, into a thriving family-run business. We're excited to commemorate such an important year and share the journey we've taken since the days of 'Old Blue' (the first Polar Rover)!
When you ask the people who have been deeply connected to the growth of Great White Bear Tours over the past 30 years, you will hear many of the same words of endearment and strength about its owners Marilyn and Don Walkoski, and about the business. Yet, the same can be said about each and every individual who –throughout the years – have been there to support and guide the endeavours of Great White Bear Tours. It goes without saying that due to their dedication, Great White Bear Tours would not be where it is today.
Celebrating 30 years of stories from the field
In celebration over the coming months, we will be sharing the collective stories and memories from Churchill as told by the friends and family of Great White Bear Tours and the Churchill Community – we thank you for your tremendous dedication. Here is to the next 30 years and more!
