Blackfish Waters Orca Kayaking Tour

Trip Overview

$1,545.00 /person

If you are fascinated by orcas, maximize your experience in the breathtaking scenery of Vancouver Island's inside passage & the Johnstone Strait.  This is the BEST place in the world to observe Northern resident orcas as they feed on salmon. While others are content to simply watch whales, sea kayakers yearn to experience them up close and witness their natural behavior.  Paddle whale-rich waters and explore the the marine wonders of their ecosystem. This is the only itinerary to spend 6 days in this area, optimizing your chances of special encounters with these magnificent whales.

If weather permits, you'll stay at three different base camps on three different islands in the heart orca territory. Full-height canvas tents with sleeping cots await you at each wilderness base camp, so you can enjoy the orcas without the hassle of making and breaking camp or hauling a tent. Part of your tour will be spent in Blackfish Sound, home of orcas and a high concentration of humpback whales!
