Each year, from July to October, spectacular orca return to the waters of
Northern Vancouver Island. There are close to 260 members of the fish-eating
Orca, known as the “Northern Residents”, and they are often in the area
In pursuit of salmon.
It is always a special moment when you have the opportunity to see an orca "spy hop". This is done when a whale wants to observe the surroundings above the waterline. There are several whale watching and ecotourism companies on the north island that offer different viewing
opportunities and will provide extraordinary experiences.
