You will spend 4 days / 3 nights at our Orca Camp in Johnstone Strait surrounded by BC's nature while our residential Orcas swim up and down Johnstone Strait. No harsh Zodiac rides chasing you down the Strait to get a quick glimpse at our resident Orcas. Johnstone Strait is a Marine Highway in the summer time. Locals, fishermen and kayakers enjoy the spectecular Johnstone Strait. Our tour is a non-mass-tourism nature adventure. Every single tour is put together toughtfully and with all our hearts. Kayak, relax at the beach, join our outdoor sauna, whale watch from shore, camp and fish. It is your time to take a break from your busy world. Let us pamper you in the most beautiful place on earth to view Orcas in their natural habitat. All meals included from lunch day 1 until lunch last day.
This tour is our most connecting tour with nature and BC's wildlife and, to no suprises, the most popluar tour. No hidden fees, no surprises. The intinerary is flexible, as all our other tours, as much as possible, we will customize the tour include your favourite activities. As locals we know that mid July to early September are the best months of the year for whale watching. Orcas travel up and down Johnstone Strait when the fish is running back into the rivers.
On the trip leaving from Campbell River to our Orca Camp in Johnstone Strait, you will start to get to know your fellow 'adventures'. You quickly leave Campbell River and all the trappings of civilization behind. The scenery is amazing. Our kayak guide Jesse, Bill or Dan will drive you safely to our launching site at Naka Creek. And who knows, you might see a Black Bear mother with her cup on the way up!
If you have never been in a sea kayak before, you will be amazed at how stable and comfortable our Delta kayaks are. How effortlessly they glide throught the water. It is like nothing you have ever done before. You will truly feel like a part of nature.
It isn't unusual for a pod of killer whales or dolphins to swim past our nature camp to see what you are doing. We have also witnessed Oracs using our beach as their rubbing beach. Click here to view our latest video: Orca come very close to our beach. Even Humpback whales have been know to put in an appearence. Campfires and marshmellows are always popular!
You will find yourself in a rainforest and also in Orca territory. Be prepared for strong winds and rain. But also very beautiful sunny, foggy and calm days. Our nature camp is one of the best places on earth to reconnect with wilderness and wildlife. Our Orca Camp is a perfect place for whale watching rain or shine. A woodstove under our grouptarp will keep you warm as much as a fresh brewed cup of tea or coffee.
Johnstone Strait is a Marine Highway. Not only whales & dolphins such as Orcas enjoy this unique area thru-out the summer month. You will see beautiful cruise ships, top notch fishing boats and other kayakers of course. Jesse and Sandra have worked combined of 25 years in this area. They have lots of stories to tell and places to share.
The day ends with a hot meal cooked outdoors with organic and fresh ingredients. The night will end with a campfire (as long as there is no fire ban) and stories from the days adventure. But, step away from the campfire, get away from the light and look up at night the sky. The view is spectecular!
