The northeast of Vancouver Island and the opposite inlets and estuaries of western British Colombia provide some of the bear whale and bear viewing in the whole of Canada. Many of our clients have enjoyed extraordinary encounters with grizzly bears at knight inlet and been whale watching in Johnstone strait for Orcas and Humpback Whales. This tour in the same area is for the more adventerous traveller looking for a more intimate way of viewing killer whales by 'travelling' in a kayak and camping in remote locations where the highest densities of Orcas come together to feed and socialise.
