Whale WatchingThe waters of Johnstone Strait are considered the best place in the world to observe orcinus orca (killer whales). For a few months of the year these beautiful marine mammals are present on a daily basis. We should have excellent opportunities for observation and photography of whales.
People with a keen interest in natural history will thoroughly enjoy this trip. Each voyage is accompanied by a highly experienced naturalist who will give talks, slide shows, and lead shore excursions.
Black bears are frequently spotted among the islands on these trips. They like to roam the shore, feeding on crabs and other intertidal organisms. However, it is the opportunity to see grizzly bears feeding on spawning salmon that makes this trip unique! It is a classic wildlife experience.
This area has a very rich and varied bird population. Many people will be amazed at the number of bald eagles we see on the trip. Colorful seabirds such as oystercatchers, pigeon guillemots and rhinoceros auklets are common and we see large numbers of smaller water birds, such as phalaropes.
