Kayaking with Orcas

maporcas

Our guided orca kayaking adventure to Johnstone Strait, situated between mainland B.C. and Vancouver Island, is the best place in the world to see these magnificent orca whales. Every summer resident orca pods return to the waters of Johnstone Strait to socialize and feed on salmon returning to spawn in various creeks, streams, and rivers.

One of our clients describes a memorable meeting with orcas on a kayaking tour in Johnstone Strait – “Khwooff! the blast of his blow hole was as loud as a geyser. The bull orca passed just in front of our kayaks, about 25 meters out, surfacing straight ahead, so close we could see the white patch by his eye, the greyish tinge of his back, and follow the whole graceful black and white curve and arc of him, from nose to tail, as he dove again.”
  • we respect guidelines established for orca viewing.
