Where we go

Where we go

The areas served by our guided sea kayaking tours include Johnstone Strait, 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 marine environments are teeming with wildlife including killer whales, humpback whales, Minke whales, dolphins, porpoises, sea lions, seals, black bears, river otters and, in some places, sea otters, bald eagles and intertidal invertebrates. And let’s not forget about the rich history of the land, too! Many aboriginal bands have called this area home since before recorded history.

The degree we can show you depends entirely on which adventure you select!

Robson Bight – Johnstone Strait

The Robson Bight Ecological Reserve was established in 1982 as a protected area for the Northern Resident killer whale population. The area hosts several beaches that have been traditionally used by this population of whales as rubbing beaches. Not only is the water surrounding the bight protected (to the extent that entering it is prohibited), but the upland area has been protected from logging, too, in an attempt to preserve this unique area.

Johnstone Strait

Kayak with killer whales in Johnstone Strait, the world-renowned location to view these magnificent animals in the wild. It is located between the northeastern end of Vancouver Island and the coastal British Columbia (BC) mainland.

Broughton Archipelago Marine Park

This little known part of the world is a haven for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. We believe the best way to explore this spectacular wilderness is by the silent, non-intrusive kayak.

Gods Pocket Marine Park – Queen Charlotte Strait

Gods Pocket Marine Park in Queen Charlotte Strait lies between the east coast of Vancouver Island and the mainland. Shaped by hurricane force winter storms, this archipelago of islands sprawls across the strait and offers its wild, rugged shorelines to kayakers.

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 hosts a series of benefits over many other beaches along 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 to witness wild killer whales and other local marine wildlife in their natural habitat.

Hanson Hide-Away Base Camp featuring the ‘Orca Lounge’

Kayak wilderness base camp with spectacular panoramic views of Johnstone Strait & Robson Bight.

Humpback Island Base Camp

Our Humpback Island kayaking base camp is spectacularly situated with frequent humpback whale sightings directly from the beach!

Spy Hop Point – Johnstone Strait

Spy Hop Point is one of the original premier sea kayaking base camps in Johnstone Strait! It has been developed over the years to be one of the best camp locations in all of Johnstone Strait.

Square Notch Bay – Blackfish Sound – Hanson Island

Square Notch Bay is set in a sheltered bay on the north shore of Hanson Island, providing ideal access to Weynton Passage and Blackfish Sound. It can include views of humpback whales, killer whales and sea lions.

Weynton Passage and Blackney Passage

Weynton Passage and Blackney Passage are narrow and relatively shallow areas between Queen Charlotte Strait and Johnstone Strait. Weynton Passage is situated on the north side of Johnstone Strait to the west of Hanson Island, while Blackney Passage is situated to the east of it.
