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.
Robson Bight - Johnstone Strait
The Robson Bight Ecological Reserve was established in 1982 as a protected area for the Northern Resident killer whale, or Orca population. The area hosts a couple of beaches that have been traditionally used by this poulation of whales as rubbing beaches. Not only is the water surrounding the area protected to the extent that entering it is prohibited, but the upland area has been protecetd from logging in an attempt to preserve this unique area.
Broughton Archipelago Marine Park
Gods Pocket Marine Park – Queen Charlotte Strait
Kaikash Creek Orca Camp - Johnstone Strait
We specifically selected this beach in Johnstone Strait for the home of the Kaikash Creek Orca Camp because it has so many benefits over other beaches in Johnstone Strait. We believe it offers the best possible location on the Vancouver Island shoreline to serve as a base for sea kayaking tours, when your goal is too see Wild Killer Whales and other local marine wildlife, in their natural environment.
