The whales are currently being acclimated to the icy waters before their trip, Thrillist reported. Though belugas are Arctic creatures, the two whales have been swimming their entire lives in far warmer waters than they would have in the wild

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Great that it’s an open water “sanctuary” for them HOWEVER it will be an unnatural tourist attraction and run by a company that also runs an aquarium (though I’ve no clue on the standards of that said aquarium or the species that they house). Obviously it is far better than the sea life centres of recent past and even current places, but I would much prefer a sanctuary to mean free from tourism and as close to nature as possible. We need protected open water areas for the ocean life creatures.
