Killer whales and Humpback whales of Northern Vancouver Island, $1,599.00 CAD
Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Islands Archipelago are among the best places in the world to view killer whales in the wild. This 5-day expedition is dedicated to observing and learning about the killer whale populations that congregate here each year to intercept migrating Pacific salmon (“resident” killer whales) and the abundant populations of seals, sea lions, dolphins and porpoises (“transient” killer whales) that inhabit these waters. In addition, each year this region also attracts large numbers of humpback whales that feed vigorously on krill and small schooling fishes. Watching these enormous animals feed is an exhilarating experience, we hope you’ll join us!
