Beluga Whale (Delphinapterus leucas)
A small, toothed whale, completely white and without dorsal fin. Used to arctic and sub-arctic conditions. They are slow swimmers and prefer to form groups up to 10 animals.
How to Identify
The only completely white whale. Size, color, melon-shaped head and lack of dorsal fin are distinctive characteristics.
Where and When to Spot
I saw this whale species on both trips to Tadoussac.
