Where we go
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 beautiful part of British Columbia we can show you depends 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, or Orca population. The area hosts a couple of beaches that have been traditionally used by this population 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 protected from logging in an attempt to preserve this unique area.
Kayak with the Orcas in Johnstone Strait, the internationally renowned best place in the world to view Killer Whales 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 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.
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 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 along with the Humpback Whales, Orcas and sea lions that inhabit it.
Weynton Passage and Blackney Passage
Weynton Passage and Blackney Passages 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.
