Johnstone Strait, BC

Kayaking - Canada - North America

The Johnstone Strait is the channel along the north east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It is a major navigation channel on the west coast of North America. It is the preferred channel for vessels from the Georgia Strait leaving to the north of Vancouver Island through the Queen Charlotte Strait bound for Prince Rupert, Queen Charlotte Islands, Alaska, and the North Pacific Ocean, and for southbound vessels from those areas bound for the Port of Vancouver. The Strait is home to orca whales during the summer months, which are often seen by kayakers and boaters packed with tourists.

"Fabulous 6 days with Whales"

Wildlife Viewing
Kayaking
My best friend & I went on this trip together and we had the time of our lives! We saw either Humpbacks or Orcas on each of the 6 days, and saw both on several days, as well as many bald eagles, seals, sea lions and porpoises. In addition to seeing a lots of wildlife throughout the week, every day was packed with the most amazing scenery throughout the Johnstone Strait and Blackfish Sound. Our guides did an amazing job of keeping us in the right locations, but also, safe and entertained. My best friend has strict dietary restrictions and our guides took the time to bake desserts for her that were GF and vegan so she could enjoy dessert with everyone else. They were so very thoughtful! I highly recommend this trip! It was an amazing experience!
