and other wildlife since 1991

Where we go Sea Kayaking

The areas served by our guided sea kayaking tours include Johnstone Strait and Robson Bight, Queen Charlotte Strait, the Broughton Archipelago and Gods Pocket Marine Parks. Collectively these form The Realm of The Orcas, or home of the killer whales. These remote Vancouver Island, British Columbia, marine environments are teeming with wildlife including Orcas, Killer Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Dolphins, Porpoises, Sea lions, Seals, Black Bears, River Otters and in some places Sea Otters, Bald Eagles and many other birds, a wonderland of Inter-tidal Invertebrates as well as being rich in the history of the many aboriginal bands that have called this area home since before recorded history.
How much of this threatened part of British Columbia we can show you depends on which sea kayaking orcas adventure or killer whale kayaking tour you select to share with us.
