Located in Telegraph Cove on the east coast of Vancouver Island, BC, North Island Kayak has been providing our customers with the opportunity to go kayaking with whales and other wildlife in this spectacular, remote part of British Columbia since 1991.
One of the foremost reasons people come to Telegraph Cove is for the opportunity to see whales. It is world-renowned as the best place in the world to see Orcas. In addition to over 200 Northern Resident Orca who return every summer, to gorge on salmon and rub themselves on the beaches of the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve, we are visited year-round by pods of Transient Killer Whales, while Humpback Whales forage our narrow straits.
North Island Kayak is located at the end of the historic boardwalk in Telegraph Cove. Travel to our location will typically require some advance planning; the resources on this page cover some of the methods one may use to get here.
Stay in Vancouver Island North, where you can witness wildlife, such as whales, eagles, and black bears, while discovering our magical shorelines and inland wilderness. Experience Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations traditions, art, and living culture.
