Pacific Orcas

pacific orcas kayakingThe following Pacific Orcas kayaking trip describes a memorable meeting with orcas on a kayaking tour in Johnstone Strait by one of our tour guests – “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.”

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.

As can be imagined, the waters of Johnstone Strait, during the summer, is busy with boat tours. Our Pacific Orcas kayaking tour puts in at a point in Johnstone Strait further south from much of all this boat traffic. It does not in any way lessen the opportunity to paddle near orca whales.

We also realize that getting to the Johnstone Strait area can be a costly and difficult to arrange for visitors to British Columbia. To make your holiday uncomplicated and less costly, our Pacific Orcas kayaking trip begins in either Vancouver or Nanaimo. Our passenger van will collect you there.

Once you begin to paddle in orca waters, in their natural setting, chances are very high that you will see them sometime during your trip with us. We do all that we can to make this happen. Nighttime will see us camped on isolated beaches, enjoying all that a west coast marine environment has to offer – a true adventure of a lifetime.
