Set amid a backdrop of snow-flecked mountains, dripping rain forest and sandy beaches, Vancouver is one of nature’s wonders! It doesn’t get better than this.
Tear yourself away from Vancouver’s many heady attractions and head south to catch Orcas, Humpbacks, Minke and Grey Whales, porpoises, seals, sea lions and a whole line up of sea birds!
From May to October, it’s prime viewing time to see southern resident orcas feeding on migrating salmon in the Strait of Georgia and the Gulf Islands. The late summer months, however, are ideal for spotting northern resident orcas, which feed in the Johnson Strait.
And that’s not all: on water, on land, and in the air, the Vancouver Island region is home to all kinds of wonderful creatures. The long list of wildlife attractions makes your experience even more memorable.
