Summer Whale Watching in British Columbia
Share an amazing family experience with Orca watching trips in the Johnstone Strait; an area of breathtaking natural beauty which is teaming with wildlife.
Seeing the planet’s most majestic creatures in their natural habitat is one of the great thrills in life. It is a particularly valuable experience for children, as it will give them a greater appreciation of the beautiful world around them.
Experience Orcas in Their Natural Habitat
Along with my team, I have put together the ultimate activity holiday for families looking to combine adventure with stunning natural beauty. Our Canadian Peaks, Paddles and Pedals package holiday will see you and your tribe take an unforgettable journey to Whistler, where you will share a life changing experience by seeing Orca’s in their natural summer habitat in the Johnstone Strait with Spirit of the West Adventures.
Whale Watching in the Johnstone Strait Area
Through travelling in a silent kayak, you are taken right into the heart of the world of the Orcas, which will allow you to see them from water level. Hearing them come to the surface will give you a surge of adrenaline; you will then be treated to one of nature’s greatest sights as the water parts with the whale’s spray, which then turns to mist against the sky.
Give Your Kids an Eye Opening Experience
Seeing such stunning and rare natural beauty is an amazing and valuable gift that you can give your children. Not many people get to see Orca’s and particularly in their natural environment, so it is something that you are all sure to cherish and it will open their eyes to the raw beauty of nature. This is a fantastic opportunity for youngsters, and I believe that this unique expedition will be a real eye opening experience.
The Majestic Orca
The Orca, or Killer Whale as they are often called (don’t let the name deter you), is one of the most distinctive and beautiful creatures in the ocean. As the largest member of the dolphin family, they are immediately recognisable with their bold black and white pattern, to go along with a blunt head and triangular dorsal fin. They are also famed for their unique clicks, whistles and pulses which are used both to detect prey and communicate with one another. These magnificent creatures need to be seen up close to fully appreciate their beauty.
Other Species You May Spot
It is not just Orcas that you will be lucky enough to see with our Peaks, Paddles and Pedals activity holiday. For families who are passionate about nature, exploring an area teaming with vibrant wildlife will already be quite the incentive. Black bears are often spotted foraging along the shore, whilst deer, cougars, river otters and porpoises are just a small selection of other land dwelling creatures that may be seen. Bald eagles are known to circulate the area and other shore and sea birds are common sights on these trips.
Be sure to pack a camera as this is a true wilderness experience and the ultimate activity holiday for families seeking adventure. This will be one trip that brings you closer together whilst giving you and your children a priceless experience.
